New hobby for a friend

#261987 by Beave2012 » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:09 pm

So I have an old buddy who was down on his luck and moved back to where we grew up together. Had a rough transition after leaving the marines and asked me if he could come over and use the shop sometime. He did construction for a while and wanted to get into lathe work and more fine woodworking.

Decided to do him one better and found this for $500 on craigslist. Now he can even work on his new hobby at home in his spare time.

After unloading it turned out to be a 1998 mark v model 510. Great shape, but needs a bit of steel wool and wax. Also had a bandsaw, scrollsaw, mounted planer, jointer, and all the standard stuff minus lathe tools and some safety gear. Lucky for him, I got quite the supply of lathe tools and safety pushers from my many restorations and acquisitions.

Overall I think it should give him a decent start on the hobby.

Ps. If there are no pictures it didn't happen.

He knows about something but not entirely what it is. I will have to show him the ways of the shopsmith...
