    I'm a teacher by trade and enjoy rebuilding motorcycles and old things. My late father began his career as a machinist at Sandia Labs but regrettably I never took the opportunity to learn the skill from him. Anyway, I traded a bridle for this lathe and am trying to get it going so I can use it...
