ez_erock : New lathe?
duaneballard : @ez_erock 1957 lathe I'm restoring. New to me yes.
sailor_sherry : Love this!! Good job man I just finished taking apart, cleaning, oiling an early 50's Logan lathe model 922. Been nerding out on how amazing it is to thread shit. a long process to truly master this machine but I look forward to the road ahead.
duaneballard : @sailor_sherry This is a Logan model 1920. Threading is one of the things I would really like to learn how to do. I never tried it on the lathe I had before this.
sailor_sherry : I've started trying to thread, not confident with it yet. An old timer machinist friend of mine mentioned that older lathes have their own little way of working right. Which boosted my confidence with the issue of timing on the dial indicator I've been having. So it just boils down to me putting in the time to know how she likes to run, work, purrs. Same as the relationship with my bike. Good luck man
mensoguk : I started on one of these......
