South Bend Lathe: Can You Show Me Around?

Hey folks,

New here to the generator, and hoping to get my feet wet in machining metals.

Sounds like the Lathe would be a good place to start, so I’m wondering if anyone would be able to give me an orientation sometime soon. I’m pretty handy with tools and mechanics, particularly bikes, but would need the basics on using the lathe and, of course, the safety precautions to be aware of.

Thanks for the help!
