    Got an AMEC spade drill and did some boring. Took out 8" without much fuss. Put together a coolant setup with an aquarium pump. Worked pretty well we'll see how it holds up.

    Yes! One quickly learns to not stand facing the side of the chuck

    Aw,, come on. Who HASN'T stood in front of a lathe when a freshly lubed chuck is spun up for the first time??? [You get extra points if you can even taste it!]

    How about when you're boring a small hole at high speed with coolant, and you think you're ok, until it overtops the shoulder in your part an hits your 12" chuck...

    I wiped off the lightbults and window, left the rest.

    TouchDRO and glass scales Installed. Made a huge difference! A few things to clean up install wise. I wasnt too crazy about the cross slide placement but for the time being it should be fine.

    I really like the coolant gutter around the top of the apron, not present on my ATW, they rely on the large chip tray for drainage back to the sump. I suppose you'd need a lot of flood splashing around for it to be useful?
