That looks to be in great shape. Have you taken it for a spin?

Oh yeah?     Got this one not too long ago and use it off-and-on. Runs good and no complaints, good medium size 100_3230.JPG machine.

 

Makes real good sawdust.

Do u think you will be able to make the Panzer wooden
Mower deck rollers with that? I bet you already thought
of that didn't you. I know every time I see a lathe I see
new rollers . I'm sure it will b useful.

Nice! 

 

I want to get a lathe some day but my workshop is a never ending work in progress.  I am fixing to put in a sub box and wire the shop as right now, the heater, dust collector and saw running pops the breakers constantly.  Running the welder pops it all by itself, so.... I MUST get it done soon.  THEN, maybe I can look for a lathe.
