Getting close to the closed deck. Cases should be going to get bored, honed, and decked soon. Valvetrain and new turbo on their way.

That looks like a nice lathe.  I have a Logan lathe, model 830.  Made about 1945.  I traded 2 cases of beer for it.   :m  Still on of my best trades!

Watched the vid. Looks like a nice lathe especially for the money.
Yes it works well for what we do.  Although I’m not a fan of changing belts to change speed.  Guess I was spoiled with the variable speed Lathe’s.

I've had an Enco 11x24 lathe for almost 40 years now and have used the hell out of it. I bet you'll get the same results from the Grizzly. Are they as good as more expensive stuff,no,but they get the job done 99% of the time for us DIY guys.

My Harbor Freight mini lathe finally gave up on me so I bought a new Grizzly G0602. I love the new lathe but I'm already considering upgrading it to variable speed.

considered this floor plan just 6' longer, fridge moved back 3' for an additional 3' of counter top and plus a sink in the bath and a shower not a tub! the 24 version of this only weighs 5700 lbs and the changes i considered still left 14' 3" for the rail. this is the interior color that we went with on the 26' we did order.  it is nice they use residential queen beds. really nice small toyhaulers they call this one the dk floor plan  https://dunesport.com/build-toy-hauler-2.php?trailerid=150&type=Toy%20Hauler
