Tooling Up! Did I mention I like old tools?

New addition to the shop! My buddy Chris was selling this nice little Powr-Kraft (made by Logan for Montgomery Ward) lathe. Almost ready to use! Just need to finish leveling it, replace the v-belt from the motor to the counter-shaft, align the tail shaft, and reinstall the spindle bearing guard and I'm ready to go!

I love old tools and this one will really come in handy!

Awesome!! Can't wait to start makin' chips. Just workin' out a few bugs with it and I'll be ready to go! Love these machines!

Might have a couple questions for you about it. Any suggestions for things I should get for it right out of the gate?
