Hi RennKafer, I just found one hobby machinist Joint that sells mini machine tools,cutting tools,turntables etc etc. eqv to LMS Grizzly etc. Please going into www.toyoas.jp. They have show room and shop outside Tokyo.Some time next year will drop by to check it out. I have the address but it is in Japanese Kanji only. Means have to run to hotel counter for help.Subway and train system is very good. Station masters are on hand to help none Japanese speaking tourist like us. Given the station name,they will tell you how fare is,which line and which platform. If memorising the station name is impossible that memorise the station number like ''M20 Mitutoyo". Ha ha. No station named Mitutoyo yet. At a glance, the machine tools are ex-China but made to Japanese expectation which is good.
