Here on some before and current pics of my new project. This lathe was well loved with lots of green wood. It was built in 2008. The vfd is not working, but the new one came with it. I am doing a full gut/strip rebuild on it. I have ordered misc missing hardware, new labels and new bearings.The bed was some very deep scratches I won't try to remove. Any good tips on refinishing the bed? I am getting the lathe powder coated and will then start the reassembly. I am adding a anti rotation screw to the tail stock. I see lots of new lathes come with them.

I love my 1642. It does everything I ask it to.  I have no special tips or tricks as far as refurbishing a lathe but wish you the best of luck.  Please continue to post pictures of the progress.  I would love to see how this turns out. Thumbs Up

It may have been loved but it was never cleaned. It looks like you found it at the bottom of the ocean. While I'm not OCD about cleaning my tools, that's just plain neglect.
Good to see you giving it some needed TLC


For heavily rusted areas, I use Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
For light surface rust, a piece or wet/dry 400 grit and higher paper with a piece of mdf for a good flat backing block. I do try to clean each rail individually as needed but a final sanding of both at the same time for smooth travel of the head and tail.
I use T-9 to protect

The top is more stained and scratched then rusted. I do like Rust Free though. The mdf is a good idea, but I think I might need to start a bit lower the 400. I won't start the bed until after I get it powder coated (not the top LOL).
