Metal Lathe, not just for round parts.

One of the services that I offer the local bike shops is seat post removal. Something I don't like to advertise, but interesting to look at. I fixture the frame in the tool post and drill out the frozen post with an undersized drill. In the picture, 2/3 of the post has been drilled when it decided to let loose. This is usually how it goes. I am proud to say I am undefeated. Never damaged a frame, and have always gotten the post out. Back to work,
