Ok, so I am not the most web literate guy, for sure, so I hope it is ok to post this here. I am just about done with my lathe restoration, and I want somewhere to hopefully get some constructive feedback, and maybe some tips....but mostly to show it off. This is my first restoration, and I really put my all into it. The only thing that's bothering me now about it, is the few dings on the bed and ways, I am just completely unsure what to do about them. They don't affect the lathes performance, it is still well within tolerance, but cosmetically, they are driving me mad! I have replaced all of the lubricating wicks, throughout the machine, and polished all of the visible pieces of hardware to a mirror shine. Any rate, here are my most recent pics of the lathe. Enjoy.
