This is my sweetie, working on the small lathe. We had looked at it several times at Harbor Freight, before I said, "Oh, let's just get it!" He had wanted one for a long time, and it was on sale. I have a whole collection of cool little wooden things sitting on my desk now.
His family heard that he was working on a lathe, and got his Grandpa's lathe out of storage and brought it over to my in-laws. It's been special to see him, his brother, and his dad all use one of Grandpa's tools to make new things. I think he would have been very happy to know his son and grandsons are making good use of it now.
