New Toy..plus another new (to me) toy

my new lathe, with DRO (digital read-out) for making stand-offs, bushings, or anything else I might need for my planes...

And....Recently, I bought an older "Kondia" mill, and have just finished doing some refurbishing it....here are some some pics of before and after.....It had sat in a guys garage for about 30 years, and while he didn't "abuse" it, he sure didn't take that great of care of it, so it took a bit of work to make it even halfway presentable....not the "prettiest Belle at the ball", but certainly usable!!

Finally, got it all finished,(check out pic # 7) with a new switch, a 3 Axis DRO (digital readout) and also a digital readout on the quill also!!
