    I decided to move my lathe today and dropped it :( it has bent the cross slide screw. The thing was made in 1920 and I go and break it......

    When I can get to work I hope I can get a new screw made. It is left hand acme thread so it should be doable on the lathe at work.

    Good evening from Swindon.
    Just back home... so council workers don’t start work until 07.30hrs this made it a long day.
    Glad there are no caravans which normally
    Fall over on a Friday.
    Don’t think I will get a fuel bonus today

    Morning all. I am back:D
    Day 1 of quarantine ohhh what to do:). 3 days and 3 more flights then normal to get home. Expecting a visit from plod this morning so they can check out I am where I said I would be.
    Wonder if I make them a cuppa they will help cut the grass:eek:.
    the world has turned green since I have been away, all the trees out and the smell. It’s surprising what you notice when things have made such a big change.

    anyway now to check out what you lot have been up to during the last 2mths must have been lots of landy fixing going on:).

    nice sunny morning so having my cuppa outside :)
