New Old Tools are Best.

  So I have been on the search for a little lathe for some time.Tony took his back to his cave and since I have had to sneak in and use the one at work. So Today I jump on Craigslist and here it is. 60's Craftsman Hobby lathe. All modes work and we are off and running. Came with a few extra bits but no live center. So I will set it up this weekend and take some time and learn my Mo sheen like I should. Pretty helpful to have the parts book and instructions. 200 bucks well spent.
