RC,
Thanks for posting pic of latest lathe. One showing the cross slide would be valuable.
Still havn't decided which way I am going to go for mine. That's the problem when you have
too much good junk and options.

Hi RICH,
 Here is another view.
Made up with stuff on hand.
I also made a 4 pos. tooling block.
The wire wheel really dresses up the final thread nicely.
The oil is mineral and lard, excellent for brass.
This is a real "tight" little rig.
Quite small cap. but it was made for small parts.

with those lights, it looks like you're using it in a strip club
Prolly the one next to the Home Depot!

That's a real slick setup you have there. Good stuff, RC. Makes me want one even worse now.
