Finally found a home for the lathe....

I've been slowly working on a room to use for my lure finishing and realized the area and bench would be the perfect place for the rod wrapping equipment and supplies.
I still have to make the doors and move all my lure and wrapping stuff into these cabinets but at least the lathe is out of the dusty workshop..

The bench is just over 16 feet long and totally unobstructed.

Yeah, I need help big time...

A few guys have offered but we've never gotten around to making concrete plans.

 

Cord wrapped handles are done but that's it....

Thanks... I feel guilty at times looking at it all and thinking what a waste of money it is when it is not being used (which is most of the time).

 

Hopefully, I'll get motivated at some point and get working. The intention was for my wife and I to put it to work and make a little money on the side with furniture but she lost interest in it (and me redface.gif)

 

Now I just dawdle around in there...

Is that when they started making the split unit?

I have the original one piece with the holster on the transformer housing and the sponge cup right underneath it. I think I got it in 84 maybe. I remember when the new ones came out, and then the digital control tip. I felt like I missed outfrown.gifcwm27.gif

Now, I do IC chips with an 800deg fine tip and no heat sinks, and I don't burn them upicon14.gif

I hope I can get up there this fall to see the shop, drop your blank off, and do a little wrapping lesson for you.

Knocked my T-3 vert out by looking down the other night, Holy s***! It killed for a couple of days, even after going to a kinesiologist, who would not just BASH it back into place. I kept telling him "it just popped out, put it back, skip the testing stuff, I know what's out!!!" Saw my regular CP today. Plunk, ahhhhh... Better! Sometimes a tiny hammer is more effective than discussing the existentialism of the situationwink.gif

Nice lathe!biggrin.gif

I think the split unit came out in 1984.I recall using it while in the USAF.

I got this from my employer (Analog Devices) in 1986 or 1987

I was maintaining a production line that manufactured hybrid SMT micro electronics. Wire bonding, etc... They were way ahead of the curve back then.

 

They are the designer of the Wii Remote....

Great job, lost it when I had my 1st lamenectomy in 1990
