8-1/2 x 16" lathe mods
Have now also a 8-1/2 x 16" lathe on the workshop. Rust and old paint removed, it got a new look with a fresh paint coating. The rust from the external surfaces of the carriage, cross-slide, compound, chuck, spindle, tailstock quill, pulleys and many small parts was removed using round disks made with Scotch Brite mounted on a small bench grinder.
The lathe came branded as Rhino TM 400. As it has a spindle for 4" chucks and MT3 tooling, and the tailstock has a MT2 taper, can use on it the same tooling used with the 7 x 12" mini-lathe.
