    So talking about this indexing toolpost thing and convenience that it offers,
    here is my Tsugami turret lathe, copy of a Hardinge HC lathe.
    I find myself using it as a general purpose lathe, pretty much for small work
    on anything that does not need a tailstock. I have it tooled up, so 90% of the
    time, I don't have to swap out any tooling. One nice thing, I can put small
    boring bars (Like Micro 100 carbide bars) in the drill chuck, because it can
    move from other than being centered. Even though I have 5 other lathes
    I just can't bring myself to sell this one, because it is so handy.


    Edit note: Notice there are two ECL dovetail toolholders with a height
    adjustment feature. These make it so nice to center the tools, instead
    of jiggle jacking around with the fixed height ones.

      or perhaps it should be Jiggle Jacker Savaant ....
      As long as you stay OUT of the porn industry, I think that is OK to
      include in your resume. Else you might be considered one step
      up from being a fluffer.

        Oh and I will add, Free Hand Form Tool Grinder ..
        now when you are setting stops and moving tool lengths , that is still tool setting right ?
        it is just swimming and clamping that falls under Jiggle Jacking , correct ?
