Not About a bike but about the Topic
« on: June 04, 2022, 07:41:26 PM »
I have been placing all sorts of things on top the the headstock when using my lathe and for years have wanted a smooth surface to use instead of the sha[ped surface with nothing preventing things dropping off the back. Have now made a major improvement.
