Came home from an auction with a clean looking Cummins Benchtop Wood
Lathe, model #3253 (1/2 HP, 40" between centers, 14" swing) for $25.
After reading some reviews, I'm not sure whether I got a good deal yet
or not, but it seemed too good to pass up at the time. I don't have any
lathe gouges yet, but I'll be on the lookout for some. --Definitely
carbide-less ones, for the time being; I only have a lathe now because
it fell in my lap... In fact, I'm not even 100% sure whether this is a
lathe. The person doing the selling got my attention ("hooked
me") when he suggested making tool handles...
Work on my renovation project continues. Almost time to apply the
Zinsser 123. It's on sale this week at Menards.
