Finishing some parts

We’d had snow overnight so naturally I had to go out and play in it, so didn’t get to the lathe until later on in the evening. I repainted all the items from last night, and also put a coat of primer on the inside of the legs. I actually have some parts finished (well, once they are dry)!

The tailstock, handwheel, main bed, electrics cover and top alloy cover are all complete so can go back over to my workshop soon. And using Hammerite was a good idea – it’s much more forgiving than regular paint when it comes to covering over minor imperfections in the surface.
