Do any of you own the American lathe that was produced by the company hmt? It has a dial type gear selector are they trouble? The lathe was made in India I dont think they are very common in the US. Is the lathe any good. I was offered one it looks like a decent machine but it is not powered up and the gear selector concerns me I have worked on the hydroshift lathes and other oddball dreams of some rogue mechanical engineer, I want to avoid that I have enough work without messing with a bad design.
