Boley watch makers lathe rescue

Hardware > Handcrafted items

July 2014, I found this Boley watch makers lathe at my watch makers cellar. It was stored a long time ago, even before he took over the shop. Something needed to be done to preserve this machine. I made a new box from plywood, soaked the parts in WD40, derusted come parts with electrolysis and some parts with Tickopur TR3 in the ultrasonic cleaner. In the meanwhile I got an old handwheel to hold and work with the machine.
