>We finished converting the Powermatic 90 ex school lathe to 220 Single phase. Also completed the cleaning, repainting etc. SWMBO told me to go ahead and buy the new chuck now. So I have a live center and a Stronghold chuck package from Woodcraft, delivery due tomorrow. Spun her up last night finished adjusting the Reeves drive today. Conversion to single phase was quite simple, and a new Leeson 1 hp motor was only $161 delivered. Got an awful lot to learn about turning, but at least the material is cheap in this area (free). Hope I can still find time to finish up some flat work projects :~)
