During several of our discussions of lathes I have mentioned that I purchased an Asian 12X36. I had looked for quite a while for an American lathe, but had no luck. The Asian beast has done admirable service. Its dial inaccuracies becoming less annoying as I became accustomed to them. All in all, I have been very happy with this thing.
However, today I was able to purchase a round dial 10 EE at a very good price. It is about 300 miles away, and I pick it up in a week, but I am never the less tickled. It has threading, a taper attachment, and is a motor generator. I'd guess the moral is that all things do come to those who wait. Mike
