View Full Version : Need help fixing an old lathe!

12-31-2009, 11:02 PM
Anyone in MN, south metro area looking for a paying job? I am currently restoring an old Barnes lathe and need the apron's manual feed gear cut. I also am looking to get a gear in my Wescott combo chuck cut too.

I figure I would give you guys first shot at this before I contact a shop. I'd like to get my grandfather's little treadle lathe going.

There's another forum here you might want to post this in, too. The Third Hand is for folks looking to help or get help with stuff. Good luck with that - sounds like fun.
