I'm Eric. I'm a 38-year old U.S. Navy submariner who stumbled across your site while searching for threads on restoring a Hardinge HLV-H lathe.
I'm a complete newbie to metalworking - I'm a woodworker, homebrewer, and restorer of old wood working machines.
I look forward to gleaning as much knowledge as I am able to absorb from you all, and thank you in advance for said knowledge.
Hi Eric and welcome to the site. You'll be refering to Bill Todd's thread on the Hardinge. You may have seen my thread on restoring an even older lathe. Lots of info here to absorb...
