Not sure if this qualifies as machine mod but I'm working on two small lathes I started building about 30 years ago. I decided to hopefully get them built. I post a video log you can take a look at.

What brand is the lathe or is it one you designed?

I show the book in the video that I'm going by.

Well I messed that up!! All the time I was thinking acme threads when it was actually calling out square threads. Oh well this will be my first attempt at it plus I need to make the tools to try it.
