    Barry I can see your logic! I confess to loving my rear tool post which has sort of been with
    me a long time- with great results.When I changed from the Myford with its bull wheel which

    Barry Obviously, I cannot comment on the turret as 'mine' has yet to be tried let alone fitted!
    However, I did the sub table thing some time back. I bought a 918 lathe or actually a 9180
    which was one...

    Jon The feed screw question was uppermost. Hence the question. Obviously your brass dials are a
    latter addition:confused:As far as an 6x4 shed is concerned, it is going to be tight but so is

    Jon Whilst awaiting the arrival of 'Les Enfants Terrible' and their 'Les Enfants Terrible', I
    was scratting about having found two zinc alloy castings from some Myford or other. The dials

    Whether people do it or not, it is stupid to do so. And on top of that, if the machine shop is
    that cold, it must be difficult to maintain accuracy given that dimensions and measuring tools
    are set up...

    JonThe plastic cover is the shell for a Castel Garden Xe70 sit on lawn mower. It covers the
    whole gubbins underneath and this damned cable is to engage what could be a crash gear box

    Jon, You're doing fine. I wish that I was. Got a pair of screws which are probably 5.5mm or not

    things N...
