Here is a picture I snapped of the Lathemaster just after I finished the Harley axle cap boring I described earlier. I keep my machines clean most of the time when they are not in use. I get a little gentle kidding from time to time from readers that I don’t keep my tools dirty enough.
They do when in use become a mess as you see. But I have a garage shop with a walk directly through the door into the main house. I am “permitted” by the house boss to make any mess necessary, but I know without spousal reminder that I need to clean up as soon as possible.
You may think that is the only reason but it is not. I actually LIKE to keep my tools and workspace clean. Cluttered, yes “guilty” but always clean within reason. 🙂
