My neighbor gave me his old lathe. He cuts motorcycle parts or what ever. He said it’s really old but a really good lathe. He recently used it to cut steel for his motorcycle before he gave it to me. He also said he has another bigger lathe I can borrow anytime I want. He said he knows a place where a can get alluminum rods so I can do mods, and make some yoyos. I have discussed this on another forum and yes, I know that it will probably turn out vibey and or wobbley and it will be hard. Not to mention time consuming. Anyway, I am gonna be doing some sick mods on my Project 2 so stay tuned. I will be posting pics here. I am stoked I got this lathe, and for free! Anyway, don’t know much about this particular lathe. Don’t know if it is something really good or just cheesy. Any advice on acessories/tools/parts to buy for mods, comments on what you think it is worth, or just comments on what you think of it, is apriciated.
Here is a pic of the Project 2 I will be modding:
(I dosn’t look beat from a side shot, but it is totaly hammered on the rims, especially on the other side. Never seen a yoyo so beat.)
