Default new toy

I just bought a taper attachment for a 1953 16" south bend for $500.00 and it came with a ...lathe attached to it. This should be able to turn a few pens.

Love the new toy ... turning green with envy ...


Any chance of a Damascus style blank made of copper/brass in the Mokkume (wood grain) appearance? :)

You are a LOT younger than I thought you'd be.

Wow, that is what I call a "brute" of a machine, just moving that thing around is a job and a half, better you than me...!

When I saw the pics and before I read the text, I thought to myself that the machine looks older than me, after reading the text, I saw that I was right, same decade just a few short years apart...!

As for turning pens on it, its a bit of an overkill isn't it...?

I'm sure you had a very good reason to buy it and that is good enough for me.

Cheers
George

You are so going to love dragging the tailstock back and forth drilling your Damascus. I have used almost the same machine drilling metal blanks. After a few hours of that, my wood lathe seems like a child's toy.

Literaly I bought it for the tapper attachment. My 9" SB and 13" SB both dont have one and to buy one was $800-$1k. this machine works well and had the tapper and was only $500.00. However you are right she weighs in at 3600lbs thank God for my 2tonn bridge crane.
