More pictures mate!!!


My workshop is putting off my projects at the moment.

Ive just got a lathe off my grandad. Similar to the one you have, I'm in the process of getting a mill and so on.


I love detail so even how you wired the place up would be cool to know 8-)


And looks like retirement is treating you nicely. :)

I still have most of a spare RRW Blade trackbike in pieces, a good spare 919cc engine, a very wide rear wheel and tyre and I fancy running some fast 1/4miles WITHOUT tuning the engine. Just a very light, reliable bike, blueprinted standard cams and one of my race exhaust systems. Having the lathe makes things easier and quicker. Wish I had money and room for a small miller. Serious man porn. The lathe cost £250 by the way :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Fozzie, loving retirement, hate DIY, slowly learning how to TIG weld and doing a lot of stainless and exhaust jobs. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The guy is moving to Spain asap, selling up and leaving everything else with me or the tip. I went down there, Hastings on New Years day, he showed me around and said "well , whadya want", I drew breath and said EVERYTHING. :shock:

I might be selling some of the gear! Either the 135 or 185amp MIG set, metal bender, oxy/propane gear, a folding single bike trailer with a trike adaptor and the engine lift, so NO Bob, the lathe will be staying in the garage , rawlbolted to the floor. Mind you , I still have a 3ft miniature lathe that needs a motor and brackets sorting. That will fit in the Passat!!! :!:
