Lathes, welder etc

The Stepdaughter has cluttering up her house, now her dad has shuffled off this mortal coil, a Lathe that's hardly been used and all the bits for it, an engine hoist and a Welder (dunno if it's mig or tig tbh)

She's looking at around 2K for the lot.

I'll try and attach pics of the lathe.

Top marks to your stepdaughter's family for having a metal lathe in the kitchen :)


I know a couple of people who cook so badly they need a lathe or milling machine in the kitchen

How can you tell it's a metal lathe rather than a wood lathe? Not a wah, I'm assuming it's something to do with the cutting tools or diameters specified but no idea what I'm looking for.

It is a metal lathe. I had a quick look at their website.

Here is an excellent example of a woodturning lathe.

I didn't think you could "Get Wood" at your age?
I can’t, ever since that blasted cancer op, but at least it saved my life.

The toolpost and guard: not fitted to wood lathes. In the old days, D&T would have examples you could look at...
