So I’m chipping in on the Greg’s Garage 30-day #WELDA challenge to post something cool related to metalworking during August. I’ve been meaning to give my 9″ Hercus lathe a birthday/restoration and this challenge might force me to git ‘er done. “But we don’t care about restoring a lathe”, you say. Well, I’ll be pulling this machine to pieces. Cleaning it. Painting. Assembling. All the sort of tasks you might do on your project bike. So follow along. You might find something you can use.
