I have several new episodes out. Also, I realize that I previously posted episode #10 instead of #9. So I'll post what I have so far starting at #9

Here is part #9:

Here is part #10:

Here is part #11:

For the stalwart at heart, here is part #11b (UNEDITED) -- Caution, very long. I don't generally recommend this one. It is only really if someone wants to see in full detail how I addressed all the details of this part of the restoration.

Enjoy!

Here is the next segment. Here I replace and upgrade the cross-slide lead screw.


And here is the latest segment. It is about leveling the lathe, making feet with hockey pucks, improving the fit of the cross-slide, and making a cross-slide way cover.


Hope you all enjoy!
