Thank you Tom I have a grizzly small metal lathe but wood like to find larger one used in good shape.
I buy my tools local off Craigslist when I can find them.

Thanks guys
Before I came down with reactive arthritis

I had a 50 year collection of what the wood workers call old iron tools made nearly a century ago. Kinda like the wrap around push pull cool.
I thought My hobby was over I was in a wheel chair an a walker for 8 months. And the doctors could not figure out my problem.

So too pay doctor bills all my tools were sold.

Finally a specialist in arthritis diagnosed me with Reactive arthritis an told me over time I would get just fine he was correct.

I got well I found some tools on Craigslist that you see in pictures I’m happy as Ross Shafers pig we see in his making chips videos! The End

Shown here is a couple of pieces of what the American wood worker calls old iron. Similar too what I let go because I thought I was toast.

The old craftsman from Old Mexico has just a few hand tools an doses not need power tools to build high quality instruments an furniture. It’s a old school craft an art of how too handed down form centuries past.
Give them a broken coke bottle or piece of glass an they will make a bored Smooth as glass.

The paper over the door cut off a piece to protect work bench surface when spraying glue or paint. Don’t tell my wife I stole her Christmas paper.

Every think in my shop has a certain place to hang or hold by magnets an there never there when I reach for them an sometimes they never come home. Have you seen my fret
Hammer?

Your milling machine and pillar drill really should be bolted down.

It's not a good idea to have those type of machines free-standing, as there is the possibility that they could overbalance in use.
