So today I picked up my little Colchester student. I’m super happy to get it home. Got some other projects on so can’t touch it for a while but it’s so nice to finally have one. Thank you to @Patrick Gill, he put me in contact with a lovely guy called Robbie, he was so helpful. It’s been nice for me. He offered so much up to me, he didn’t want anything for the smaller bits like a lovely 6” vise and heater, he said he’s happy to give it to me knowing I’ll make good use of it. I do love meeting people that have a lot of info to give. They leave a nice impression on me. He started calling me the night owl because I don’t stop thinking, he said I always seem to think two steps ahead. Shame there aren’t more people like him and his family about. Would you guess that the lathe goes in a transit custom? Me either haha. It’s made to measure I have been stressing because I wasn’t sure how it would sit or even fit and it was perfect so that was nice.
