First post. Seems a good place to start

Picked up a very sorry looking model M Mk1 a few years ago.
Started stripping it to sort the half nut engagement and kept going.
Not finished yet but has been put back to work


Picked up an L last year for the collets and chucks. Couldn't bare to break it so apart it comes. Paint job was misleading. Most of the machined surfaces had been treated to gloss white.
Compound nut was bent like a banana but managed to aquire a new cross and compound to use for parts.


Also have a capstan tailstock and lever cross slide for it I picked up from Bracehand.
Getting closer to making swarf again.
