Over the past year I’ve taken on many machining and engineering projects so I’ve definitely spent a lot of time with these machine tools; becoming familiar with both their capabilities and their limitations. In this video I’ll be tackling some of the latter. Specifically on the metal lathe. I have a whole list of improvements I’d like to make so I’ll just be starting with the things that bug me the most and going from there. And as always I’ll be taking the “do it yourself” approach to all these upgrades, from engineering design to precision machining. Enjoy!
