For every member who asks a "daft" question, there are probably 10 who wish they had the courage to ask the same question. Personally, I've not seen anyone on HMEM who considers an honest question anything close to "daft".
One of the unwritten rules here is that no one is ever told to "read the archives" or "use the search feature". Even the most rank newbie is shown respect here.
Ignorance is simply "not knowing"... not a crime and easily cured by asking questions. It's being too stupid to ask the questions that will get one killed...(grin)
If you are considering adding a milling machine (combo style) to the lathe, save your money and buy the free standing version. The work space will be much larger and a lot more versatile. If you are simple wanting a "milling adapter" to use on the lathe, www.littlemachineshop.com
offers one that will bolt to the saddle on the lathe and allow you to use the lathe chuck to do some light milling. It's not all that expensive, but it would still take money away from your milling machine funds...(grin)
