This (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250645406703&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:AU:1123) will give all those Stubby owners an inferiority complex:D (you listening Calm?)

That is a lathe and a half. What's that I hear? Is it the sound of feathers being ruffled?

Cheers

Phooey. My S1000, now Peter's, could take 1100mm diameter, speed range 0-c.3000, work both sides of a bowl given the aux bed and 2nd banjo etc etc. ;-}

Seems underpowered and too high minimum speed for that size lathe, tool rests too large (50 mm dia.), etc. But what do I know?

Actually the min speed wouldn't bother me if the frame were solid and bolted down.

And 2 real HP with VM electronics would be a plus.

I can't quite make sense out of the free stand .... tailstock mount or tool rest?

All that nice weight and big 50mm spindle necked down to 1inch X 10 tpi????

I wonder how long a 100 kg out of balance stump would stay on the the spindle.

South Bend 10L face plates with a 2 1/4 inch X 8 tpi are common as dirt on this side of the pond.

1 1/2 X 8 and 33mm X 3.5 mm thread pitch are fairly common.


Nearly, not quite.:wink::D

I agree with that.
