>I drove 200 miles to pick up a Smithy metal lathe/mill and then built a rolling stand for it. What's this got to do with woodturning you ask? Well For a little over twice what you would pay for a wood threading machine, I have a machine that will thread wood with any pitch I want. I can also build all those neat little gadgets and tools that are in the back of my mind that I think of every time I'm turning.

It needs work, the Cross feed carriage needs cleaning and adjusting but other than that it's it' good shape. Moving a 400 lb machine in the shop was interesting but thanks to a Vidio Dominic posted I was able to raise it up on blocks on the truck and then jacked the truck up to slide it off on the cart.

Tonight I get back to woodturning.
