While I was out in the shop, setting up the new lathe and turning my first project, some sick individual decided to set off bombs in Boston near the finish line of the Marathon. Needless to say, but I will anyways, my excitement over my new tool and project were forgotten.
Now that my wife is home safe and my friends are accounted for, I can get on with my excitement.
This is my old lathe that was dying on me.
And this is my new machine!
