      Ha!! Mine is a toy, but it's made a lot of small tools and small parts.

      My little Unimat SL1000 can't twist that big stuff, but I can still hold .0005 all day long. I make the stuff you loose in the chips of that brute.

      I was lucky I got a real good deal on it. It is very good condition. I have a good 3 jaw and a steady rest for it.

    With my limitations, I couldn't do that!!!
    BUT, I "think" with a good lathe with a thread chart, I "think" I could still cut threads???

      Don't toss those tapered kitchen table legs.
      by pooch


      Always hard to find metal bows, and I would never chop a restorable set.

      This is what you can do with kitchen table legs.

      I first flattened them to an oval, then sectioned a piece out where the bend is.

      Then squared it a touch on the inside of the bend so it would fit in my stretcher machine, and pumped the curve into it.

      How to install metal tire tube stems
      by Mitch
      Courtesy John Carter!

      Usually the hobbyist purchases new tubes with the metal stems already installed. If you want to convert your old tubes over or just install the metal stems yourself this may help you out.

      Took the Carb off today!
      by MontanaRed
      Need some opinions, Took my carb off today and this is what I found under the bowl, bowl doesn't have any holes in it and all the valves seem in good working order but that rust corrosion is pretty bad, also there is a small hole at 11oclock on the first picture it appears to be a machined hole, is it suppose to be there? Float has some dents in it also. Soaking it in evapo-rust overnight now. So...
