Welcome to the world of the machinist SenKat, although I got out of engineering 15 years ago I have hardly been without a lathe for my own use since.

Put a vertical slide on your christmas list and you can mill with it as well

The lathe is probably the #1 metal working machine out there.... Great for almost everything! My school has 10, (6 or which are from 1932, and still running strong!) and they are an extremely handy piece of equipment!

I wish I could afford one!

Have fun! And remember, don't hit the chuck with the tool.... lol

Congrats on the lathe...there is a whole sub culture dedicated to modifying that one you bought to make a ultra precision lathe.

cnc kits are readily available as well.

Welcome to the addiction of metal work. Don't forget to remove the chuck key

LOL !! I said, "Honey - I think I am going to get a lathe !"
Her reply was, "Are you sure you could use one ?"

My THOUGHT was, "DUH !!" What I said was, "Yes, Dear - I am SURE I can make good use of it !"
And the rest is history...........

Congradulations! *I used to use one that was about 8ft long and I loved it. *Could make almost anything you want. * Can't wait to see what you come up with now. *Now you just need a mill and you'll be set

Greg --

Congrats on your acquision !!! YES - a lathe is a must have for this work. I have one about like yours and you will love it -- well not like LOVE !!!


Harbor freight also has a new smaller lathe for about $250 - bare bones but better than a file and drill press !

Start with simple spacers and heat sinks. -- Mike
