I've owned a Taig lathe for some 25 years and have enjoyed making those things you can make on a small lathe, mostly for my hobby of radio controlled model aircraft. I have the same moniker on RCUniverse and have posted some of my love for machining on that site.
My equipment includes a milling attachment, a taper slide, four jaw chuck and some custom made tools.
I'm ready to upgrade, mostly because I'm venturing into bigger work that the Taig is struggling to handle.
Just a random browse led me to Busy Bee's sale item here,
Can't tell by the picture so the nice lady said they'd get back to me about a taper slide,, included or extra. Yes, I really don't know a lot about machining over and above the little bit I've done on my engines and the like.
I wonder if the good folks on this forum might have any comments or advice for me regarding this machine. I realize that much depends on what I expect to accomplish but anything over a Taig is a step up?
This machine is actually a bit more than I need. I know of the Sherline but for some reason, it doesn't appeal to me.
