This is more like it...

After yesterday's fiasco with the lathe lift jamming up because I left some masking tape on the drive shaft.... I was just about ready to give up the whole project at that point, I was considering selling up and becoming a beach bum. However tried again today and it took the lathe right down OK... That was the easy part. Raising it back up again was going to be the real test... 110 lbs. All I could think was "This could be very embarrassing if it grinds to a halt with my friend Guy watching".


Many thanks to Guy for coming over two days in a row to help lift the lathe into place, and for not laughing when it all went wrong on the first day.
