Hi Bazmak
Yep very impressed with the sc4 review. It is a pitty about the reverse tumbler.
I only have a picture of the workings of the spindle disengaging feature so I can't tell much.
Is there room inside there for an idler gear and some way to mount it.
Lol trying to upload the picture not quite sure how.
Regards
John

Hi John,the chuck disengage is no use at all only if you buy the milling attach
and its cheaper to buy a mill.I did a thread on refurbing an advance lathe
and made a tumbler reverse for it .See thread.Hadnt looked to see if it possible on the Sc4.More important things like making chips.

Default Finally a lathe

Well it took me a year longer to get one than I thought but Yahoo!!!
I got a Sieg SC4. Now to get some other bits and bobs and start to make
some practice stuff.
Just a question on quick change tool posts . Is the sieg one ok or should I go for
the 0xa tormach one which is more pricey.

Cheers John

Hi John, welcome from Perth.
Nice lil Chrissy prezzie you got there!
I also have an SC4, a huge improvement on the C3 I had before.
Enjoy!

I would avoid the Sieg QCTP, I had one on the C3, usable but ultimately crap.
For the SC4 I went with the Dixon/Dickson style popular in the UK and often seen on Myfords, mine is made by SOBA, bought through Chronos in the UK but they do often have stock issues.
The OXA style is popular in the US and probably more available.
