Say hello to Martha the stupidly solid "new" lathe

The replacement for the minilathe. Came up locally and was a whole lot cheaper than a minilathe to be honest. Needs one or two tweaks here'n' there. Built in 1943 and they definitely didn't bother with weight saving. I am loving her already.

(just for comparison of size, with the apron a bit further back, the mini-lathe would snuggly fit between apron and chuck...)
