Just a quick note on a new lathe. I had a job that required grinding and machining a couple of hundred small parts. So, last week I spent part of the family fortune at Sherline. Here is the result. The grinding attachment is no more than a Dremel tool on a flex shaft with a diamond wheel. The parts were completed in less than 8 hours. By the way, Sherline got the lathe to me in two days and it was in operation in less than an hour. I already had a fair number of 3C collets. If I have any concerns about the Sherline it would be the headstock spindle may be a bit tight. I have some Hardinge collets that are too tight, so I need to find a way to open the spindle a tenth or two. Fortunately, I had collets in the sized needed that slipped in. I mention the 3 Collet sizes and the lathes that use them as I find the larger sizes much better for a lot of the clockwork I do. I also have a Derbyshire A that uses them so this is a nice addition to the shop for some jobs.
