In my spare time, I tutor high school kids. I help them with maths, physics and chemistry. I thoroughly enjoy it, because I like to teach and love to see the confidence in people grow as they better grasp the concepts of these topics. In return for helping his daughter with maths, a friend Jeroen gave me his old Huvema HU650A, complete with mill mounted on the side. An incredible gift!

I made some room in our shed and ordered a new workbench to place the lathe on. One Saturday, Jeroen and me moved the lathe from his place to mine. We had some fun hauling around the 200+ kg machine, but we got there. Jeroen had not used the machine for a couple of years, so the oil was a bit dried up here and there and some rust had started to form on the guides.
