went to a garage sale today..
lots of good stuff, but I didn't need or want most of it. What I did want was already sold.

so I picked up some small stuff.
A pyrometer, I want to cast Aluminum , so if I ever get that built, I'll have it.

Some loc line, and a miles pocket hole jig.. edit: not so crappy milescraft.. not top notch, but not bad.
$7 for all... so if the pyrometer doesn't work, it doesn't hurt too bad.. They wanted more, but I could not see paying more,especially if you saw the inside of the case.

We talked about that one when I asked him what else I should get... when I told him I was a newbie he said, that I might want to have some practice under my belt before tackling it, lol. He mentioned that it was a bit more involved... I was very appreciative of that comment/recommendation.

Do you have a thread on that build? Or specific post with photos?


No, I thought about taking pics and doing a thread, but the cast iron is so messy that I don't want to handle my phone after working with it. I might at least take a few with mill setups though, as those are different from the provided instructions. If you haven't seen it, look for Joe Pi's youtube channel. His model lathe build is great for showing ideas for working on castings.

Albrecht and Jacob’s. Best EBay deal I’ve had in a long time.
0-3/8” Albrecht and 0- 1/4” USA Jacob’s.
I‘m going to put the Albrecht on the 1930{s Canedy-Otto Royal 16, Cincinnati Lathe and Tool co.
It has the J33 taper.

A fellow forum member pointed me to Andy's website: http://mlatoolbox.com/index.html

So many cool kits. Reading feedback from other forums, the castings seem to be of very good quality. Got on the phone with the owner, Andy (what a great guy btw) just to make sure that the information in the website was current and to find out what kits he had in stock. Decided to go with the: BORING AND BALL TURNING TOOLPOST - (MLA-13)

View attachment 381393

These are mostly designed for a Southbend lathe... but I am guessing that I can make these work with any lathe... at least I hope so.
Looks like a really nice kit. Is a mill required for that kit, or can it be done on the lathe?

Bought some end mills from Brento, and just ordered a Hall effect rpm kit and a 12v din mount power supply.

still no lathe…still no mill…stupid shipping issues!

A centring scope… dunno if it’s going to be good or not, but the seller was up front saying it needed some tlc. It’s on an mt4, so some jiggery poker will be required to get it to fit my R8 quill - I’ll either machine a new arbor with a straight shank, or possibly turn the mt4 down till it is a straight shank that will fit an r8 collet. The arbor is held onto the body with some screws and has some features inside the body for locating stuff. So depending on how difficult / how much of a hassle it’ll be it will probably be the later. I just hope the optics are good.

I’m lousy at sharpening knives, not to mention lathe tools but slowly, i get a little better each time. I bought a set of decent stones for knives and hope to master them. When i get my AIM kiln converted, i plan to try making a knife or two. These stones are grits 320, 1,000 & 5,000. The stone flattener has 120 and 180 grits.

I haven't seen that setup before. It looks pretty good, and I love the pistol grip base!
