• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

I have just acquired me a nice 8mm Marshall lathe off Ebay, with a bunch of collets, but none between 42 and 28. I'd like to get some to fill out that range, if anybody has some to spare (I'll pay). Nothing like that in the eMart (naturally), nor on eBay. Can somebody help this poor boy? My email is bangster@utah-inter.net (I desperately hope this is a permissible post, since it's not an offer to sell anything.)

Thanks Hugh,Harvey attends quite a few of our Chapter #1 Marts.He always has a ton of lathe goodies to sell and he is an all around nice guy also.He's a wealth of knowledge when it comes to horological lathes.A great guy to have access to if you have a lathe question.The only other fella I've met that has as much lathe stuff as Harv was a fella from Tenn.by the name of Keith Williamson.He was also very knowledgable with the various horological lathes out there.No e-mail address but the last phone no.I got from him was (615-867-1212).If you live in the southeast he may be more convenient for you.Thanks again for your kind reply.
Respectfully,Bob Fullerton

Harvey had what I wanted, so I ordered from him. I didn't find his website very helpful, but a direct email query got a quick response.
