New lathe


I haven't updated this blog for a couple of months due to my yearly winter brain fog during the dark season, but here I am again. I've just ordered a new lathe from Bordet, the Coronet Herald.

My home-made lathe works but has limitations that I hope to overcome, and it's going to give me a well needed push to get back into making things rather than being a couch potato.

I chose the Coronet Herald as it is the only lathe in it's category that has a rotating headstock, which enables turning of large pieces, and in general it is at the top of all reviews.

I also have a project for a new workshop, as sharing the garage with madame is far from optimal and a guy needs his man-cave, right?
