RC, yep autofeed would be good. My lathe came with a hydraulic chuck but it wasnt much use to me as it had a closed centre so I replaced it with a manual one. I have since got a nice Pratt 10inch Hydraulic chuck from eBay but so far have not found a cylinder for it, the cylinder I have is closed centre like the chuck was. I dont have room for a barfeeder so if I do get to that stage I wil just make up a puller.

Good lad! Keep going. I'm doing my final 30 Waveguide 5Q flanges this week before I ship my machine out to the new place. 8500 square feet, wooooooooooo :D Trouble is, according to the floorplan there's nothing left.

Way to go Blue.........,
    I'm considering adding on 3200 sq. ft. here.
Tinkering with autoloading/feed now, may get by with 1 part timer.
Looking good so far,
Thanks,
RC

14,500 so far and Mach only skipped 1 beat in the last 4500 or so.
It hung up on the M76 line and just sat there. ? ? ? ? ?
No watchdog.....no EStop......just stopped all moves with the spindle still running.
I ain't complainin' a bit ! Mach is more reliable than any employee I've seen !
And Hood......the only thing I enjoy about production work is depositing the check(que).  ;D
Auto feed VERY soon.
