Very nice. I spent about 13 years in a machine shop. That will come in real handy. I'd love to have something similar.

I can't even count the times I have wished that something like that was set up in my shed.

Have fun with that!

It's made by Central Machinery in China and sold through Harbor Freight. I found out that this model has been discontinued, but I still plan to have fun with it.

Oh Congrats Jim!  I know having the lathe in the shop taking up space is worth it even if I only use it one time a year,, sure would like to find me a small mill also, I should get/make the stuff to allow me to do small mill work in the lathe. Id just have to get used to looking sideways at things I guess

A local machine shop wants $75 to mill a Kohler head. A few of those would pay for it.
