I know many of you will be appalled by the fact that I must keep my lathe outside, owing to shortage of space, although all the moving parts are stored under cover (in the bike shed).
So the ways are greased below the lead cover, which is only removed in the spring, so that I can turn a few tool handles, which is virtually all that this is used for. I am in the habit of dumping stuff on top; originally the lead was flat, but now it is a gutter!
Thought you might like to see it set up for turning, although in this picture I have clamped a Disston saw vice to the blank, which is locked, as the light is good here and I can just run along the tenon saw shown. Before switching the motor on. The height is just right.
Samís post from yesterday prompted this contribution, since I also have made tool rests for this old lathe.
But this is not the one in the second picture.
