The lathe has landed...

Based on how much the truck squated and the tires squished on the Zetor, I think it weighs more than 800lbs.
A little dusty from the trip. The paint is worn, as excpected on an 80 year old machine, but condition is actually quite good. (I have a feeling it may be closer to the 1500lb rating of my cheap pallet forks than originally estimated)
Yes, I DO need to clean and organize the garage...

Sort of a reverse timeline thingy. I still need some spindle oil, and I’m waiting for my VFD to arrive so I can wire it up and make some chips :)
