My father in-law was a machinist in the Army during WW2. Dad passed away and left me his lathe for my work shop as I am the only one in the family that has a passion for tools. My greatest regret is that I never took the time to have him really teach me how to set it up properly and use it.
I moved the lathe to my workshop in North-Central New Jersey, and believe set it up properly and now am looking to learn how to properly use it. I am now retired and tried to find an class on metal working but none of the Vo-Techs offer it any longer. I would love to find a someone close by in the North-Central N.J. area who could teach me the basics of this tool. Can anyone suggest a good book, video, or know of someone in this area interested in sharing their knowledge on how best to use this incredible machine?
Appreciate the help!
