Let's see what relics you've found from the past week.
Whether, it be bike related or not.
Please, include pictures as we do love pictures.
Picked up another bike for my grandson.
Also another Schwinn (American)

I know this might be a first here.
Last week, a dear friend of my of over 40 years made me this quilt for a late retirement / 55th birthday present.
Last year , one of her quilts earned 3rd place at the Virginia state fair state wide quilt competition.
The first picture - the pattern is actually a Sudoku puzzle. It came with squares of fabric to solve it.
The work and time that went into making this is crazy.

We moved out of my 500 square foot tiny apartment from my stag days :p
And into a 3 bedroom house fit for actual human life. Bahaha. So we decided to buy a nice couch...I'm basically in love with this thing. Its comfier than my bed

Then there was a local call for entries for a solo show, so I hurried my arse up and finished some art pieces

A friend had a father who passed away a number of years ago. This South Bend 10K lathe has been sitting idle since then. Last week his mom finally went. He called me up and said, "Come and get it!"

It's the real thing. Forward, backward, three speed ratios, plus a back gear. It had auto feed along the bed axis and in the cross slide.

The feed rates and TPI chart even has the British Cycle Thread pitch of 26.

Overall the lathe is in very good shape. No abuse and no excess wear. The ways still show original machining marks. A bit of surface rust has crept into the bright parts, but a little emory and buffing will straighten that out.

South Bend lathes are great. I used to run one every day at work. Well made machines!

Did anyone else notice if you sweep up and down on your phone over the image it looks like the gears are turning?

My Dad still has one of these he's not using anymore...

Well I hit the mother load. My brother decided to sell the rest of his bike stuff, along with some other random stuff.
Most of this will be for sale, and will be posted in the appropriate forums as I have time to go through it and price it. Keeping a few goodies for myself.
Filled my pickup and a utility trailer, still have a couple more loads to go back for over the next couple weeks.

My haul includes EVERYTHING you see in this attic space:

Then as my dad and I are unloading all this stuff, I noticed a guy two houses down from me, had this porcelain top table out to the curb in the trash. So we grabbed it and carried it back to my house. Has two leaves that store under the main top. I have a similar table in my kitchen, but it's white with red accents.
