This tool restoration focused on a Craftsman "Model 109" metal-cutting lathe from 1948. The lathe was giving to me by a fan about a year ago. This specific lathe is quite small for a metal-cutting lathe and everything about it has been miniaturized compared to "normal-sized" machining lathes. These were marketed as a model-makers lathe or a hobbyist lathe. These lathes do have some fatal flaws that I point out in the video. Most notably, the spindle is only 0.5" wide and completely hollow. This means that the lathe will never be able to take large cuts or work well with harder metals. If you follow the limitations of this small lathe, then you can definitely get the job done. I decided to repaint all parts as there was too much paint splatter on most of the castings. Several of the bronze bushings were worn out, so they needed to be completely replaced. I do believe this lathe was only missing one of the remaining gears, but hopefully I can find it one day. The decals for this machine were found here: http://wiki.vintagemachinery.org/Deca... After fully reassembled, I was able to get a pretty decent cut out of some brass stock that had, so I was pleased. I may take this a but further and do some modifications on the lathe to improve performance. You can see what can be improved here: http://www.deansphotographica.com/mac...
