Springfield Lathe

With the bases and bed assembled and reasonably level, I could then install the headstock.
It's a heavy piece, and put a heck of a strain on my engine lift- it wouldn't surprise me if it was
well over half a ton all by itself. I made sure the grooves on the underside of the head were clean,
and the ways on the bed were as well, then gave both a light coat of LPS-3 preservative,
to help ensure that rust and corrosion won't form inside the seam.
