    I bought a motor and now I have both a mill and lathe ready to go with no setup time to swap back and forth.

    Nice looking pattern ships. Is that what those are called/considered?
  6. AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    It's a good starter lathe and so cute it's worth keeping around for the future in case you want to pay it forward and help someone else get their start.

    BG Wells still has his and he made some...

    MM&LS magnetic chuck stop. Nice little item that can make working with little pieces in the lathe at certain times a little easier.

    MM&LS from KWICK keeps hitting it out of the park.

    Check out this cross slide DRO he sells for $45 shipped (intro price).

    It still gives access to all the gib screws, so you don't have to...

    Got a new handle with a ball end off eBay for the tailstock. Definitely an improvement over the flat steel bar.

    Got my ER16 collet set and adapter in. These will be great for round stock up to 3/8Ē, and also for holding cutting tools when the lathe is used as a mill.

    Canít wait. I knew youíre gonna make it better and better. [emoji1360]

    KWICK sent me some titanium to cut my teeth on (pun intended).

    He also sent me some drill rod (on the right pictured below) which will be used for a future knurling tool project.

    Got the new crosslide in today and tried out the powerfeed. Works great!

    Wow, that is on another level. Neat video.

    Thank you Brian, Iím really enjoying every step of the learning process! Have a great Friday and I canít wait to watch you cut into that big chunk of titanium you have reserved for your big lathe....

    I donít know Dave, youíre doing pretty good with your Husky restoration! [emoji1360]
  22. AV80R starts making scrap metal - Taig Micro Lathe

    Yeah, I went cheap for the ones dedicated to the Taig. The Craftsman set I have is rarely used and pretty much never used on any airplanes.

    I just replace with new if the threads are damaged on...
