No longer at space.

Update As of July of 2011 this Lathe was adopted by one of our members and taken to a new home. The lathe itself needed a ton of work and was missing several key components. Nobody wanted to take point on the project so it languished.


I came across a big, heavy-duty antique metal lathe that I dropped off at the space. It has a long, 72" base and everything we need to turn metal except a motor. It should be a great tool for future projects once we get it working.

  • Find a motor to drive it.
  • Get some cutting tools.
  • Find a jaw
