Picked this up last November and spent almost 5 months restoring it.
Here’s a few pictures of the process.

1962 Brodhead and Garrett J-170 manufactured by Yates American.

David, that is a superbly done restoration. Very nice!

That is a beautiful restoration on some serious old American iron. :cool: :good2::bravo:
Reminds me of when I did my southbend metal lathe. They are a labor of love.

That is so cool!

Amazing job on the restoration and after all that I'm not sure I'd want to turn anything on it. Then again, to use it day in and day out would be awesome as well.

Fantastic job!!!
