The ins and outs of first time buying, blacking, moving, repairing, modifying and personalising a narrowboat pair, with a view to being able to live on them and be as self-sufficient and eco-friendly as limited funds allow.

My workshop now has a treadle lathe
My 'Hobbies' treadle lathe, now built into the workbench next to the Singer
It has grindstone, fretsaw and chop-off saw attachments
I will paint it to match the Singer, but will need to pull it out from the bench to use the fretsaw.
