Back from the Show in Eugene. I’ll write up a re-cap post in the next couple days. Short version is the show was great, and I’ve got some spiffy new handle material to stash away for future work.
Instagram Feed:Finally have the watch bench set up in the new space. So much more still to do, but this is a satisfying milestone.Finally finished rebuilding my Levin drill press. Picked this thing up off ebay for a reasonable price expecting it to need work, and did it ever. Showed up with oil dripping from the switch housing, a frozen spindle and 3 pounds of grime. Rewired the motor, stripped and painted the castings, made new idlers, replaced the index pin in the spindle, and put in new spindle bearings. It ran through the break-in process with no issues. It is going to be nice having this up and running.When the forecast is for 71F in April,. You make the time to enjoy the day. The same forecast also calls for snow on Saturday, sigh.
