NOTE! Adam misspeaks in this video. This lathe (along with its motor) was sent to him via a fan named Paul Dorton, who thought he might like it (he was right!), NOT purchased by Adam on eBay. Apologies to Paul for the error!

Adam embarks on a series of builds related to a mini watch lathe he just received. But before he dives into that lathe, he first takes on the task of restoring an old watch lathe motor and pedal, stripping down the components to clean, paint, and re-wire. It ends up being one of Adam's favorite vintage hardware restoration jobs ever!
Correction: The lathe motor was a gift from Tested viewer Paul Dorton--thanks Paul!
