Seems to have everything you need, so I'd expect it to be good. It's got a knob for speed control already, which is good!

You will have a mighty fine machine when you are finished with it.  Are you sure you will want to use it after all the work you have put into it??

She's a long one Dave, but nice and pretty! When you say scrape the headstock, do you mean the bearings or to fit the bed regrind?

Hi Steve,

That would be the fit to the bed.   The spindle bearings are absolutely perfect, I don't even think they need adjusting!
