  • Beaver wood lathe

    3400 wood lathe was a fine mess.
    Looks like it was stored outdoors.
    Everything was coated in rust, even the motor.
    Everything cleaned up well with a lot of scraping, buffing, and paint.

    The turning tools had been laying on the floor.
    Don't know if I can clean them up.
    Still need to make up a bench.

    Looking for a replacement wing bolt as in #2 picture --- 3/8 thread

    Re: Beaver wood lathe

    Certainly looks better than what you described.
    Nice job.
