    Doesn't matter what you bought or how many times you say it. We're talking about leather belts here.

    Did you know they stretch and they have to cut chunks out of them from time to time?

    Jed is not wrong. Those cast iron tables need to have a clay lining in the fire pot or they will crack again at the first firing. (Voice of experience).

    Since my current lathe cost $600, I'm probably well over that in tooling.

    I always left that bolt out of mine. I also put a little knob on the lower bolt that attaches to the swinging cover.

    Easy access encourages proper oiling.

    You're thinking too hard. It's a round part, so ignore the rotary table. Hell, ignore the x-y slides on top of it as well.
