Dave,
Keep it up and you'll need a shop expansion.
Nice lathe and hope it works well. You got to admit there is definitely some satisfaction
in building your owne stuff.

lol, no worries, Peter, that stuff doesn't bother me at all in a "show whatcha got" kind of thread.

As for upgrades, although I'm a sucker for gadgets and add-ons, I think I want to take the time and actually learn how to use the damn thing.  :D I'm new to the cnc thing to begin with and I've come a long way since only a year ago when I bought my taig but the cnc lathe is just a whole different animal to learn to program. I don't even have a decent CAM program for the lathe yet as it's either pull your hair out with something cheap or spend $800-$1200 for something that I know nothing about. Sure, there are demos out there but I've found that sometimes you still don't like a product even though you've had some time to test it, ya know?

I would like to make a nice heat sink for the DC motor, alomost like a covering of aluminum fins. We'll see, I'm sure I'll think up more schtuff along the way-  ;)

Thanks,
Dave
