I want to say THANK YOU to every one for the nice comments. I'm glad you like it.
I'm going to be starting on the FMC bean Cutler next and I'll post progress reports as I go.

Jerome, The lathe is a South Bend model and it's around 70 years old.
It will hold a 9 inch diameter if I can grip it on the inside and 8 inch if I have to grip it on the outside.
I bought it off a guy I worked with back in the early 70's.
