Well after playing for a week and making a few smalltools I made a list of mods to help this model that I found online
1changing to ball bearings on both cross and compound ,now as the original holes are somewhat sloppy would a properly sized bushing do as well
2 ball bearing on the carriage drive crank , there again as in #1 above would I be better served with a properly fitting bushing?
3 buying the 14" bed for it , anyone done this ?is it wothwhile? I do mostly fishing tackle repair with this lathe
anyone have the specs on making my own belt drive for my mini mill ?
4 plans for the groz type qctp or similliar ?
