Hello
« on: January 05, 2015, 09:03:23 AM »
Hello just to introduce myself, I'm coming up to retirement plasterer by trade(I'm glad thats over).
Well I've always been interested in machining so I bought myself an old Myford ML10 which needs a bit of work and a small chinese lathe I'm using at the moment. The Myford is working but all the Feed/Leadscrews are worn and need replacing so no thread work is possible on it at the moment. I hope to buy a mill in the future but only a dream at the moment. I came accross this site through youtube so I hope to pick your brains and learn all the tricks from you. Rob

Rob,  hi.

Welcome.  We seem to spend more time fixing or modifying our machines than actually making things with them,  so you will be in good company.

Dave.
