finally got my lathe set up! turned my drums a couple of nights ago and finished the brakes


Picked this old brake lathe up a couple of years ago from a family friend who was getting rid of it. Cleaned her all up and repainted it (why not right?) and finally have it all set up. Turned the drums on the 65, and they came out great! Been a while since i've done this so i practiced on some old ones first lol. Brakes are now completely done......new bearings and seals in the front as well and all new lines/master/fluid so she should be good to go

Nice! You could probably make a few bucks turning drums for fellow hobbyists.

Cool machine. My buddy and I used an identical one in high school for the drums on his '67 Ambassador. Worked great.
