    One of your cutter inserts isn't seated fully. It did clean up good.

    Had the stand sand blasted, first coat of paint just a brush and a roller. Also made up some brackets for casters. IMG_20180120_150215.jpg IMG_20180120_150445.jpg

    So I had to repair the ash/auger door latch. I had a spare so it wasn't an emergency repair but I didn't like the latch on the spare door. The original latch was made out of pot metal and the threads stripped.
    So I made a new one out of steel. It actually has alot going on for such a small piece. The hole going through the center is stepped to make room for a spring. The threads had to have flats put on to keep it from rotating in the door then I had to grind a slot for a pin in the shaft to recess in to. Sure was glad to have my lathe and mill.

    Nice job. It looks great. I would love a lathe. But sadly no room.

    Great craftsmanship and its nice to have the tools or machines to be able to do your own work.
