    My local Blanchard grinder really hates cold rolled bar to the extent he'll send it out for stress relieving before grinding. If it goes out with other plates then he'll do it for free.

    A one way clutch, something like you would find in an automatic transmission would work so you weren't constantly driving the pony motor.

    Bring the table all the way to the back, so the ball nut is very close to the bearing block. That's probably the best way of aligning the thrust bearing.

    The Lyndex collets I have from McMaster have an India sticker on the side, so presuemably Indian origin.

    I'll put one in the lathe and check the runout. It's an HLV so I know the spindle is good.
