Default My Shop My Rules

I just wanted to share some photos of my home shop and some other interests. The lathe is old but still works well. The Bridgeport is a recent purchase it was a steel at $550.00. The spindle was locked up turned out to be the bearing nuts on the top pulley were out of adjustment. I had a Grizzly mill drill and it worked ok for home use but after using Bridgeports at work it had to go. Thanks for looking

Thanks, that thing should have been thrown away. but little by little it is coming back to life. I put an AMC 360ci V8 in it with an automatic trans and the axles and transfer case out of a wrangler. It will start and drive but it has a ways to go yet
