Lathe and tools

To build this bicycle, my main tool will be my Taig lathe. It is a small lathe I bought for my scale model projects but it will be quite capable of doing the turning and machining necessary. I have most of the accessories available. I have also made some of my own upgrades including new dial handles, tail stock handle, and steady rest made with an old transmission bearing. Before I get too far into this project, I would also like to add a lead screw to replace the stock rack and pinion feed.

Other tools used so far include a table top drill press, angle grinder, bench grinder, and basic hand tools
