Awesome haul, Cline. That lathe is beautiful. I have a small lathe. I have lathe envy.
Real nice!Barely, I'll have to move a few things around but I left space for it. I have to have one for some of the transmissions I build......I've been having 20 TH350 & TH400/4L80E Direct Pistons cut down at a time by a local hobby machinist....The results have been inconsistent, He ruined 5 TH400 pistons last time by machining too much off them.....TH400 aluminum pistons with a large work surface are getting hard to come by.
This one also weighs over 2000 pounds, I used car dollies & a Cherry Picker to roll it over to my trailer....Then I winched it on. Backed the trailer under my 2-post lift & lifted it off the trailer. It's still sitting on my lift....I'll try to get it moved into position tomorrow.
So nice! Also I've had decent luck with the super inexpensive tool holders like from Shars et al. You can tell the precision isn't there in the dovetails because with some the handle travels a lot before they lock down, but so far they all work.Ordered a Aloris AXA 7 piece set, $864. Won't miss shimming different tools!

I'm unfamiliar with the concept of only buying tools you need??????View attachment 137530
All I really need in 1/2” SAE.
Any flat metal surface that needs removal of hard deposits, automotive related or not. Should work well on my garden shears and pruners to remove hardened sap. Can also be used to deburr blades of all types.What’s the scraper used for?
I'm sure not all sap is equal but I got some Goo Gone "Pro Power" that works wonders on our pinion sap. The Pro Power is key as regular Goo Gone hardly does anything. I have no idea how the formulations differ.Any flat metal surface that needs removal of hard deposits, automotive related or not.

Are those centering gauges( or whatever the proper term), to line up the bit in the center of the broken screw?Grabbed this on Zoro, took advantage of a 20% off coupon.

I believe so. I'd have to double check with @Trav, as these are new to me. I got tired of easy-outs and was looking for something better.Are those centering gauges( or whatever the proper term), to line up the bit in the center of the broken screw?
