I have been aware of this little lathe for several years. The owner had a sentimental attachment to it and wouldn't part with it. He was a friend of my buddy Bruce with the Blazer. Well he passed this summer and Bruce knew I liked it so one day he showed up at my house with it. I couldn't believe it. Still has the original Craftsman motor too. I think I am just going to hang it on the wall as a display piece. Probably swap it over to a piece of plywood instead of the diamond plate that it is on.
