    All my Kurts look like that... And not a single mark from me. I figure I have about $10k less in vises than buying nice used and they do exactly the same thing.

    I buy Lennox blades from Western Tool in Milwaukee(Oregon). They ship cheap and fast and the prices don't seem bad at all. The only blades I've broken have been 100% my fault.

    That's same style lathe as mine.

    Would there be any chance you could show a pic or two of the gearbox/mechanism that switches from inch to metric?
