First cut on the new lathe.

Test casting I did a while ago. Bronze cast in sand. Mostly this was a noise test and as I suspected it's less noise than the washing machine. Once the room has some sound insulation and the stand is on rubber mounts it won't even be heard outside the flat.

Need to order some more cutting tools and some industrial plastic for prototyping and making patterns for casting in bronze next month.
