Thanks Hood
yeah It looks like non of the usual suspects in the US stock these. I looked in MSC, Wholesale tools, Grizzly, Enco and  a bunch of small Hobbies like Little machins shop. and it looks like ebay is the only source I could find.
As for everyones programing comments. I do a lot of my programing by hand so tool comp is not a problem. Also I recently picked up Dolphin CAD/CAM the gentleman over there gave me a great deal on both the Pro MILL and Pro Lathe modules for under 500 smackers.
I am in the process of building a beefier CNC Lathe to replace my little 9x20 which is what this tool would be for.

man, I swear I searched MSC, I guess my search terms were incorrect. Thanks, though it looks like I can order them from RDG tools in the UK and it is still cheaper with shipping than MSC.

Thanks

sounds reasonable, downloaded the trial of lathe and it looked fairly good, might have to call them and see whats on offer but as usual I am betting the deals are not as good this side of the pond.

yeah, I had to call the guy and the deals are really only for hobbiest. So you gotta convince them that you are one of those. I had to show him that I make these

and explain that selling art is not really a business, because selling art is really really hard.

as for the software, I think it might be good, if I would actually take the time to learn it before using it, Rather I have been messing with it, without really knowing what I am doing and It is proving troublesome operate. But I take all the blame for that. :)
