Thank you all once again. I discovered that I made a mistake and will have to take some of it apart. It involves the path that the belts need to run. Should have seen it coming. I will tackle the changes tonight.

I finished the lathe tonight. At least as far as I can go without adding more walls. I added a belt changer, some small details, and finished the overhead crane. Getting the chain threaded through the blocks was very frustrating. I as ready to give up and ask Mrs Hopeless to teach me knitting!

I am giving this a 9.7, I will raise the score when I see metal more filings on the floor and a close up of the pin up girl.

I'll give this a 10+. Exceptional work on a Western Scale Lathe.

Roland, This is stunning! I can see where Larry is coming from though. While the machinist might be too persnickety to leave a few more chips about, I doubt he could prevent some weathering on the brand new floor riser and tool tray set. Speaking of chips, my guess is a Sherline would make them in about the right size for this monster!

When threading the chain, did you think to try a pull line of thread? I find that trick usually solves all my threading problems.

Oh yeah, and the pin-up. We definitely need a better view to ensure all is right with the world.

Very very nice work Roland.
Glad you didn't give up on it and hung in there.



As you think, so will you be.
