    A big cargo rail accident was just reported. I think your lathe will be delayed while the shipper figures out how to replace it....

    -400f, bcf is 870,000 lbs. ERF is 914,000 lbs. Empty weight on most of them is around 350,000 lbs. Can carry up to 350,000 lbs of fuel, but usually around 200,000lbs, and 200,000 lbs of cargo.

    It's on the truck again, yet again between 1 and 5... Hope it isn't the same dickhead driver that delivered the other lathe...

    Silky smooth on the apron controls. Has a nice rubber way wiper on the cross slide
    HF is having a sale on Gantry cranes right now, and with another 20% off coupon, think it might be wise? Hmm, might not fit under the garage door opener.... Have a Tetris problem to solve...

    Congrats! Are you re-using the previous stand, or did you send that back and opt to build a stand for this one?

    I don't want to be picky since its cheap import machine but it looks like that the headstock is leaking oil?
