2 Years with the Storebro Bruk

Shocking to believe that 2 years has flown by so quickly!   I bought this lathe after it fell over on a fork lift while being unloaded. Needless to say it needed work.

Looking back at it now I don’t regret buying the lathe because it fell and needed some work -all of those repairs were relatively easy.  What does concern me more is the footprint it occupies.  This is a big boy!

There are still some handles that need to be made and the motor has been rewired for  VFD. In terms of performance it is certainly a rock star!

In the near future I hope to provide some updates with where the machine is and what was needed to get there.

 

First Post- Why I created this page..

One of the most frustrating things I have encountered lately is a fortune of great posts being ruined by images no longer being available because of hosting changes.  I told myself that I wanted to own all the pieces for future preservation!

I previously had a web server and it required a good bit of rework… rather than doing all that hard labor I just created this site!

About 13 years ago I started on the car you see below. There should be a good number of historic pages added to discuss the build and modifications.
