    Budget is flexible, say $3K-$6K depending. I agree about taking my time and asking lots of questions. I had a job that had me in a rush to get one initially, but it's no longer needed so I can take...

    Yes 1 inch is exactly 25.4mm

    Noob lathe selection question

    So I'll ask the question here since:
    1. I am interested in gunsmithing as a hobby, already handload and build rifles from components.

    I feel your pain. Primers are the most unobtanium thing out there right now for reloaders. They are always available at gunbroker but for 2X-3X the normal price.

    If it has not been mentioned, keep in mind that most of the material in off-the-shelf presses is there for stiffness, and not strength, for the sake of precision. So you not only need to consider the...

    Agreed on all points. I did not want to get into all of the details for time's sake.

    johnoder thanks for that brochure, that lists the specs in detail.

    Not having the lead screw reverse on the apron, I can see how that could be annoying. But then again the distance between...

    I see what you mean about the swing, did not notice that, thanks. But, what the heck does "raised in the sand" mean? Is that like growing up in the desert?:D
