    I don't think you folks will have to worry about crap material from China anymore if Trump has his way. The driver for all this China trade has been and still is price. Greed has over ridden quality...

    As others have said, there are BP clones and BP clones. I bought a BP clone in China a few years ago new. The head was made in Taiwan and is an exact copy of a step pulley Bp. The rest of the machine...

    I'm sure everyone has their own system, but I like blade holders that use a slight positive angle. On my L&S I use a straight blade holder, both work well for me. I use 7 degrees rake when...

    Those metric change gears alone are worth more than the lathe. They are very scarce.

    Thermite is 100% correct. Any wood/steel construction for use outside does not work hard fastened together. The wood, MDF or whatever just moves around with temperature and moisture way too much. You...

    This is a usual issue with air rifles, not powder burners,as suppressors are legal. Not so with powder burners. That's first, so I assume you are talking about a 30 cal PCP air rifle. If so, you...

    I have one. These are one of the best made lathes ever made. They are getting very hard to find and they are worth every dime they cost. Buy it first, then send pictures. Don't let it get away. You...

    The OP's question is legitimate. For many years I just drilled the hole straight to the minimum diameter and then tapped the hole to my desired depth. As many have stated that depth may be all over...

    Plastics in the wet absorb water and swell. Some more than others. It is very hard to predict. In marine use, loose is good and tight is bad. You should use a .0015 press fit and a .005" running...
