    Itís not fun doing small work on a large lathe. Everything is so ďbigĒ itís hard to see what youíre doing. Also as mentioned thereís no feel.

    Take a look on ebay. There is a 1612-U and 1612-3. Compare the two and you will see there is no comparison. The -U is a lighter frame, a different shape, no tach, etc. It may be an OK saw but itís...

    Maybe, could be true for a lot of career paths that donít lead anywhere anymore. So what, do something else. Turning handles on a Bridgeport doesnít pay. Not a surprise
