Of course there's interest. It's what we do around here.
I guess having two of these lathes means you're considered "Hendey" around the house...

Would anyone have any interest in another Hendey refurbish thread? Or is one enough?
I'm really not trying to bore anyone to tears...
Thanks- Bear
I like rebuilding machines myself, even if I'm not up to the quality of work you do. For that reason, I'm interested in more refurbishing threads. My challenge is that I never really *finish* refurbishing, I just keep playing with things.

I am about to start refurbishing this Hendey, and have been debating on whether to do a build thread on it, or not...

Would anyone have any interest in another Hendey refurbish thread?
+ 1 for interest in more Hendey restoration. Who knows what we'll learn from this one that the first didn't teach us? You did a great job illustrating and explaining your last restoration, so if you can share this next project we'll all be grateful.
Do you take requests? If you could make #3 a Hendey gear head lathe, I'd be even more excited about that!
:)

Ummm... 3... a 12" and, now, 2 14"s...

Yeah, I know... :laughing:

Hey, what about that Pratt and Whitney 1909 lathe.
Now there's a project

I'm thinking... just thinking...

Thanks, I just do what I can, right or wrong... just try not to make it worse.

Thanks! Maybe one day I'll run across a gearhead, I'm definately not ruling that out.

Ok, I'm convinced... I'll start another build thread on the 14 x 8. Be looking for 'Another Hendey Refurbish', coming soon!

I'm glad someone else is getting something out of what I'm doing... I know I'm enjoying it!
