Firstly, apologies for the title but it had to be done. So another stray arrived on the drive at the "home for retired lathes" as we are now being called by some local wags....
This one was retrieved from what could loosely be described as a shed and delivered for into our hands for safekeeping, it is of course a pole lathe (hence the name Polly the Pole Lathe - sorry!), something we are very very familiar with and have spent many hours working on.
The other greenwoodworking gear is going to have to come out of retirement now and some sort of fairly "rustic" space will need to be set up ....after suitable negotiations that is.
The real question is where am I going to put the charcoal kilns....maybe that is a one of those questions which is best left for another day.
Here are the photos:
