    Just shows what a waste of time a fluid flush would have been.
    Once it was bled up, the master cylinder started dripping & I discovered a scratch on the piston stem where it goes through the seal that I hadn't noticed, its also 40 year old alloy that's been exposed to the elements.
    After 5minutes of head scratching while deciding what to do with the old part, I remembered there was rather a nice wee lathe in the corner that I hadn't had the cover off for a couple of years.
    I cast about for some material & found in the toolbox that hadn't been opened for twenty years until last week, a nice length of stainless bar that appears to have been used as a drift for many decades.
    Found some brand new genuine Myford cutting tools still with the protective plastic dip on the end & have started to rough it down to a size I can start with.
    It's very nice material to work with, & the brand new tool set is a bonus.
    I'm quite looking forward to tomorrow.
    I could really benefit a tool upgrade, I have the original tool post on my sheldon, but it's still neat to be able to make simple bits or clean stuff up.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    Just been looking longingly at lathes on Tardme. Looked at a house that came with a boxford that would have suited me better. Didn't buy the house, they decided not to sell, and he never contacted me about the lathe which he got all sketchy about.

    Ahh, money better spent directly on bikes than lathe upgrade. Plus moving them is a drag.

    Bob - have you got a center drill and live center for that lathe ? Please, use a center on this.

    That's a lot of overhang and even free-cutting stainless can surprise you - particularly at small diameters

    And yes, Spyda, I am a tuner and a turner too, lol.
    Dave, everything I have for my lathe uses the same size carbide tip. Very convenient.

    Thanks for the tip, I have every accessory you could imagine, I all came with the lathe. I will centre it tomorrow before it gets any thinner.
    It's currently no thinner than the last pic.

    does it have a cupholder, or do you have almost every accessory?
