The Boxford Lathe Arrived!

Having turned up yesterday on the back of a transit van, and no way for us to get it off... the boxford made its way back to us, this time on a lorry with a tail lift!

Now we have an excuse to try out our new engine hoist :)

Engine hoist worked great for moving the lathe into position, I think it's going to come in very handy during the build! We have yet to get the boxford running, its 3 phase, and currently we don't have a 3 phase socket in the unit. We have borrowed a 3 phase converter from a frined, so will give it a go on that at some point.
