How are things going Dave?

Hi Rich,

Things are going well. I have things cutting the right shapes finally. I think the stock motors on the Emco 5PC are too slow so will try upping them to 160oz-in and Keling drivers. Gotta check finances first so may stay with the old set up for a while longer. I don't have any lathe projects for them so no great rush.

Thanks again to all who helped. It was very much appreciated.

Dave

Dave,
Glad to hear you didn't throw in the towel. Not having any specific projects is the ideal time to just play around
with the wizards, one by one, and then when the time comes, you can work with some confidence.
As far as slow movement goes, as a hobbiest,  if it takes 10 or 15 minutes instead of five, so what!
Enjoy the moment,
RICH
