this morning got the 3 bearings for the lathe $27.62 for all three including tax versus $62 at the auto parts plus tax and the bearing house had them in stock,the ap store didin't. The bearing house also said he could get the belts that go with that lathe but would have to order them and would be less than half of what I paid thru Sears Parts........lathe will be up and running tomorrow . I got to make eleven window sills(for a beach house) today for my beautiful SIL
Congrats on the bearings Dickie...and I guess that from the time of your last post you are about to re-assemble..I sincerely wish you success and hope all goes smoothly.
From what you have previously reported there were a number of loose part issues that you will cure by doing this strip down.
If nothing else the confidence of knowing that all is as it should be will hold you in good stead for the future...can't wait to hear that all is spinning nicely and that we see some more of your creative turnings.
Time for reflection.... do you remember your first postings and can you see what progress you've made over those 2-3 years ?
To me it's like looking at old photographs..you don't think you've altered that much until you you actually compare how you looked a few years ago ...!!
Power to your elbow mate and again hope it all comes together nicely.
Note: the first two pictures, top to bottom, show the sample woods I bought to match: mahogany, walnut, oak, the bottom is the side of the table. The remaining 3 pictures are of the wood in question...
