First part made using the lathe!

I have made a brass spacer to allow my new quick change tool post to be fixed to the lathe. I used the lathe to face up some 5/8″ brass bar that I had bought, then I drilled a 10mm hole in the end of it and parted off a 1/4″ section to give me a brass spacer.

Making Meccano parts

Just bought a lathe and milling machine in order to have a go at making some brassware – new addition to the hobby. It’s never going to make money but it’s fun.
