Two favorite thing in my shop *PIC*

>Here is a picture of two favorite things in my shop. My bench dog Katie and my spanking new PM. I had lots of suggestions on how to get the 650 pound lathe out of the back of the truck on the Wednesday night chat but it turned out to not be as bad as I thought. My friend Dan and I were able to just muscle it one piece at a time. Turned the lathe bed upside down on the floor of the shop, mounted the legs then turned it right side up, slid on the head stock and the tail stock and the banjo and it was done. The guy at the store told me that I wouldn't get any more catches, leave tool marks or need sandpaper with this lathe.
