Progress update – Schaublin lathe

Having been dabbling in lathe dealing over the past few months while trying to get the bits I wanted for my workshop, I’m now almost back at the point of having a working watchmaking lathe: a Schaublin 70 with lots of accessories. Probably not what most would consider a standard setup for a watchmaker but I think I will be exactly what I want: an accurate and rigid setup on which I can turn fine staffs and cut wheels and pinions. Just a little more wiring to do, for the overhead drive, and then I’m ready.
