    Rotary Table Alignment

    I always thought that if you center the rotary table with with a center finder to the mill spindle you are good.

    Chinese hit and miss engines

    My silver one ran great for 2 min, lost all compression. Ordered orings from McMaster Carr, will try that to see if the compression will come back. If not, it will be time to lap the valves. PS - I ran my on coleman fuel. Not sure if that is affecting the green orings.

    Please don't operate a lathe if your stupid!!!

    With the cuts in high school shop classes, it is going to get worse. In the 70's I learned how to operate a metal lathe and basic foundry skills in high school! We were not allowed neared the machinery until we demonstrated a respect for it. Few if any kids got hurt in class.

    Lots of glitches in my 350s, it does work fine on my mini mill with an occasional reboot. I did do all the grounding mods. It does not like the micromark power feed at ALL. Still using it today. Played with the CDCO one too. Works OK. Still in a box. I put a DRO Pros unit with real scales on...
