Decided to put some time in on the PM lathe today. Got started on the apron today. Sill many more hours of work needed to finish up the apron alone.

Couldn't set away from the apron today. Got some more done. I still need to get the worm gear area finished up.

I used metal bonder to hold the lead screw blocks in place for now, just so I could line everything up and get it working smoothly. Now I've got to take it all apart and drill the leadscrew blocks.
