    This, but it's a deep and twisty rabbit hole to go down.

    A top slide isn't difficult to do if you've got the tools but as you say, where to stop. I re-scraped my Monarch CY top slide, then had to...

    Here's one definition.

    If you're living in a country that has a President for life - you're living under a totalitarian regime.

    So, in summary, your attitude is 'Fuck you Jack, I'm all right'.

    Thing is, Myfords had beautiful build quality in a shitty, flimsy, flexible design with a smaller work envelope than a small SB.

    Ummm, the Maximat 11 IS the lathe I use for the small, quick jobs.

    Same work envelope, need more/faster metal removal, Chipmaster.

    Otherwise the job goes in the Monarch CY.

    Well, of course not. His 10EE is in bits, no need to mount a chuck at all. He's a master at disassembly, getting stuff actually working is someone else's problem. Probably after the estate sale.

    I've got an Emco FB-2 mill. For what I use it for, it's OK. Plastic, aluminium, occasionally steel & stainless.

    It's lightweight & feeble. Well built but simply not very rigid.

    I stuck him in my ignore list. There's a good chance that his senile postings will exceed his output to date and I simply haven't the interest in finding out.
