tool caddy - 4 replies

I added a second tool caddy to the end of the lathe. The first one is full. I placed it low so I could use the full length of the lathe without the tools interfering. I also like cutting edges down. Though I do need a system to identify what’s what.

kickback paws digging in - 4 replies

I just bought a new Grizzly 1023RWL two days ago. I got it set up and checked out. Parallelism was dead on for both fence and blade right out of the box. Could not detect any run-out with my dial gauge. Everything was just about perfect except the vertical stop was 0.005 out. I adjusted it to 0.002 and call it good as I’m not sure the supplied b...
