I recently participated in a very poorly advertised online auction for a semi-local small electronics factory that was going out of business. Got a bunch of random furniture for super cheap, and my father picked up a Central Precision 12″ Lathe. I think his intention was to replace his larger lathe with this, which would give him more space… but instead he turned around and sold it to me for what he paid for it. Enter, my new lathe! I’ve finally got it set up and powered… ready to really start learning how to do cool stuff!
I've already done a few small projects on it.Made spacers for my mill stepper conversion, and smoothed a long steel rod for work.
