I realized that in all the posts for all the various tools I've been developing for the watchmakers lathe, I hadn't really posted any full shots of the lathe itself. Below are a few shots with several of the tools mounted in place.
I have the three jaw faceplate with the centering collet mounted with the additional external chuck bearing in place. Additionally, the micro-adjustable steady rest is in place as well as the lever feed tailstock with the drill chuck runner mounted. Finally, the adjustable PTO for the countershaft is in place as well.
More to come.
