    Gav's 101.

    Got some more done today. Brake reservoirs finished along with all plumbing. Throttle cable back on, but missing a few small clamps so couldnít get the dash back in but a good step forward. At least this weekends work has got me back on track with it so Iíve ordered some parts and should be able to get it buttoned up once they roll in.

    Parts are here, including new Timken bearings and some other goodies. Should now have enough parts to get it back on its wheels. May get side tracked this weekend though as I have a few other things on my plate.

    Looks like it will be yet another week before I get back on this unfortunately - too many things keep coming up - Will be playing with the Lathe tomorrow - might grab some footage of this as I may have to use the enormous face plate of it (hoping not to as I need the engine crane to mount it) but fixturing of the parts could be difficult (hopefully the 4 jaw will be big enough, but yet to try.)

    Although the 3 phase isn't finished in the house yet, I did find something suitable at work lying around that will get me out of trouble...

    Well the mighty ĎIron Horseí lathe came to life this morning for the first time at my place - off the genset but at least Iím lucky enough to be able to grab one whenever I like - I might even plonk one semi permanently down the side of the house with my mates crane truck until I get the 3 phase finished - will see.

    Everything functions as it should - only had a short play when I bought it, but itís proved to be what I thought. Runs smoothly and quietly, all gears and all threading and feed gears work too. The rapids on the main carriage and cross slide are good fun too and not something Iíve seen on other lathes Iíve used.

    Just finishing cleaning, oiling and adjusting everything then I have a few things to spin up - May get some footage of this will see how I go.
