    Default 9 Years a member, Id better say Gday.


    Long time ghost member here. As an IT teacher (25 years), I enjoy collecting and restoring hand tools to get away from the digital world. I even occasionally make something for my workshop (an overcrowded garage). Whilst I own a metal lathe (see pic below), Ive never had it operational. I bought it with the power cable cut off. I was told it works but havent been game enough to repair and use it. Hopefully some members who have experience with lathe restoration will be able to help. I have found very little information about Brackenbury & Austin and even less about the New Gregco lathe.
