    Yes.


    Nothing planned, yet.


    Yes, but if you need the widest part of the dovetail to be only 6mm, which I do, a 1/4" cutter won't work. (6mm = 0.23622in).

    I've not yet done all of the alignment things like shimming the feet or the tailstock yet. Next weekend probably, after I manage to borrow a machinist's level from a friend. Thanks. :)
