    His frauds have gone nation wide. I see him posting machines on our local Craigs List showing his address as Omaha, NE but the links take you to his main web site, which doesn't show an address.

    Scroll on down to the "NMTB (Quick change) Shanks". Machine Tool Shanks (Tapers) I think that you'll find it to be an NMTB 30.

    Hope that helps,

    Is it plugged straight in to the outlet or are you using an extension cord? If using a cord, get a lower gauge (bigger) cord or move the machine close enough to plug it in.

    In before the close.

    Just a "heads up", searching around on ebay I found someone offering a newly made "compound screw & nut for SB 11" lathe". They looked well made and mine is a bit "loose" so I put a set on order.

    It would depend on which parts are needed for the "cannon". Wheel bearings for the carriage, etc. shouldn't be a liability issue.

    I'll second what eKretz said. It's really a pretty simple design and there is not a whole lot to impede the quills movement so make sure the quill lock is off and put the spindle feed in neutral.
