Hi Folks,

 

   Jim,   Glad you like it :)

 

  Hi Keith,  not too long,  went on ebay to look at used lathes and checked out some newer ones on commercial sites.  Just tried to get the porportions close.

 

  Thanks Neal!!

 

  Hi Darryl,  Thank you.

 

  James,  Appreciate the kind words!

 

   Thanks Tom :)

Continuing to amaze us with every post I just do not know how you "see" this to create these works. The weathering, choice of materials and colors..Genius, and from a modest man.

 

Thank you for sharing these with us!

Question that just occurred to me, Randy. What did you do for the casters on that little cart? Is there some type of kit for those, or are they scratched? I'm mainly curious about where you found that thick-walled tubing.

Wow! I just happened across this one...excellent! I like the subject of a newer style lathe. This will be a perfect parking spot for your beautiful builds. I will stay tuned!

About once a week or so, I go into the Dio area and just found this. Randy - this is amazing and inspiring work. It looks like that lathe could actually function. I know who to call when I need some small parts turned. I am constantly impressed with your work.
