@StevenDouglas This is first in the cue. I did the design on my iPad in an app called Shapr3D. It’s a direct modeler that uses the same 3D engine as Solidworks.

So I have all sorts of stuff in my head that I want to make. I’ve had no means to do so until recently when I bought a 1951 Atlas lathe. I’m currently rebuilding the threading gearbox. It needs new bushings and shafts. Had to make tools to remove and install them. I also have no formal training doing machining. So I’m please with the results so far. After the lathe is done I have a 1940s still press that needs a new spindle. Eventually I’ll get to actually make some of the stuff in my head.
