    Metal Lathe

    We've just started building our own metal lathe. We'll be using Gingery and the Open source Concrete Lathe project as guidelines. We do not intend building a Gingery Lathe or a Concrete Lathe, we intend building a high precision metal lathe for both gunsmithing work and general engineering work.

    We've just completed our furnace this afternoon and we are busy burning it in.
