I thought a SB 10K WAS a half scale lathe. Nyuck! Nyuk! Nyuk!

Seriously I dunno. I've seen photos and images of dazzling models of other classic machine tools. I'd be amazed if there wasn't a lovingly made scale version of the 10K.

Forest, isn't a 10K more like 1/4 scale for you?:D

Lane,there's a fellow in ye olde englande that builds truly beautiful scale models of machinery.His name is Barrie Jordan,and his models are on a website,but I can't for the life of me find it at the moment.Perhaps one of our english brethren can help there.If I remember right his models are to 1/6th scale,but it should give you some idea of what it takes.Personally I couldn't hope to approach his kind of artistry.

If I had seen Mr Jordan's models before I started this http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/remark/pages/workshop/projects/images/pittler2.jpg I might not have bothered !
