A couple of months ago we shared a lathe restoration video that had us drooling, so when we saw this new one come up we decided we had to share it as well.
Old tools and equipment are awesome, but sometimes they need a freshen-up to look or perform their best. In the case of old milling machines and lathes, they often work perfect but are cosmetically challenged after decades of use. So how hard is it to restore one so it looks awesome in your shop? I’ve never done it, but I do like watching videos on it so I’ll know what I’m up against when I find the right deal for my own machine.
After over 700 hours of work I have completed my lathe restoration. I am excited to share this video. Enjoy!
