Been busy for a while refurbing my girlfriends fathers old lathe. It's a Pools Special made in Nottingham, England in the 1930's. It belonged to his father originally and was in a pretty sorry state sat out his garage unloved so he asked if I would take a look at it for him. Surprisingly very little wrong with it other than copious amounts of rust and a generous helping of paint all over the half nut mechanism so was locked solid. Just needs a new motor now, then ready to go. Enjoy!!
