RODALCO mentioned Hobbies out of Control in his post on the old clock connector.

What a good new thread that could be!

Hobby out of Control? How about this? Lathe headstock and Tailstock on wooden stilts, re-grinding the kingpins for my Renault tractor @ 450 rpm.

Balanced nest jig bolted to the faceplate with a running centre.

The grinding head is a quarter-horsepower motor unit out of an old planer blade sharpening machine. Worked a treat!

Anybody got more mad-hobby pics?

Alan: I will have to get pix of the "lathe turned into boat winch" from the cottage next time I am up... Girlfriend's Grandfather built it and it works great, but alas, the wiring is hideous!
