I thought i'd introduce myself. Name is Ryan, Im a qualified machinist. I left the trade well over a year ago, but i still have a passion for machining and machine tools. My first project is going to be the "concrete lathe": The Concrete Lathe Project | MAKE
Being a machinist, I have an idea how i want things in regards to x and y auto feed, the height of the chuck and an attachment to divide the chuck via worm gear and wheel. Keep an eye out for for my build thread
P.S. Im also an avid all-grain beer home brewer.
