Metal Lathe Machining
« on: August 05, 2019, 12:02:38 PM »
Last couple of years Iíve dabbled in turning metal on a hobby Southbend lathe I bought used.  No fancy projects or anything, just making parts for repairing mechanical problems I run into or tools I think I need for other projects.  When I retire there in 2 years, Iíd like to continue machining metal and advancing my skill in it just for my own use and satisfaction.

Are any of you doing any machining?  I suppose it would be impractical to bring my lathe there so I would have to search for one there. Has anyone seen industrial supply stores that carry metal lathes for hobby use?
