new addition
« on: September 19, 2015, 04:19:12 PM »
picked up a myford ml6 capstan lathe with a big box of collets
hardly any wear on it, just needs motor and got spare one from old drill press.
want to make adaptor so i can use my 5c collets with it.
but need to find out thread size of spindle first.
and i know its back to front but just put it together so nothing went missing whilst sorting out space for it.

Nice, I do enjoy seeing the older Myfords being put to use. I have an ML4
