First i would like to say "hello" to everyone. i have been browsing this site for a long time, and finally just subscribed to it a couple days ago.
So i bought a Busy Bee 10 x 18 lathe in January, and it took 4 guys to get it into my parents basement. As of the 16th, i am going to be a first time homeowner, and now i need to get this lathe out of my parents basement, and into my own. the stairs into the basement of my house, have a 180* bend in the middle. does anyone know of an "easier" way of moving this thing? to move it before, we bolted 2x4s to it and carried it like a stretcher.
im building a "tiny" project, and i need to drill the smallest holes i can. i have #80 bits, but i cant hold then in my drill chuck on my tail post. how do i hold the bits? is it because i got a cheap chuck, or is there something im missing??
thanks for the suggestions.
