    heh, A simple misstamping.. Kinda wonder how many lathes where made like that however...

    My fav is when its set to 29.5 degrees... Off parallel with the carriage ways... (as opposed to the cross slide, Like it should be)

      I use to have a Taiwanese RF40 clone mill/drill that had an actual fine downfeed on the quill of 3mm per rev. of the handle but the graduated dial was marked up for 2.5mm per rev. It took several scrap parts before I worked out what was going on.

        Can happen to anyone




        Got another somewhere where it reads 9 - 11 - 10 - 12

          Another good reason why you should buy USA made tools.

            I wonder if the guy in the link has figured out the dials are SAE and the Leadscrews are Metric yet?
            I just need one more tool,just one!

              ...and that dial is hand-stamped.

              I was wondering if he had a mix of SAE/metrics on that lathe, too.

                Early in the days of Japanese electronics I sold Pioneer stereo equipment.

                The Pioneer 424 Stereo Receiver had an input jack on the back labeled "Porno" (instead of Phono)

                    Ah... that'd be 1/4-20 coarse and 1/4-20 fine.

                      Frank:

                      GTD I know, and that one is correct, where is "TTH" (or whatever that says) made? Could be USA, but I don't recognize it.

                      Mistakes?

                      Of course, can happen anywhere*

                      But some cases are a tad more obvious, and say quite a bit more about the "intensive quality control" than others. probably nobody checked the angles on that machine in the link for accuracy...... or they would have seen it.

                      Possibly they DID see it, but said "it's at the right angle, **** the numbers, SHIP IT!

                      One would suppose that the use of numbers is universal, and the "ESL" issue is considerably less important with numbers than words.

                      As for odd but similar words..... I certainly cannot write chinese well enough to make any sense, and can barely speak any now. Did learn enough to show I made the effort back when I went over there on business in the 1990s. Far be it from me to complain about those, although they may be rather funny.... I reserve the right to laugh.

                      *Have a good look at the "7" on this example of quality German production...........

                          If the Chinese had a QC system that prevented the shipment of products with errors they wouldn't be shipping any products. Then we'd all be buying USA/Europe and could spend endless hours bitching about the price.

                            And I've worked with many American QC inspectors that would have missed the very same problem. But then again, when you're told to inspect 1 out of 10, which one do you pick to inspect??
                            The handy part is, if you only inspect 1 out of 10, your failure rate will never be any more than 10%.

                              Ya but....If every one inspected fails then Q C should realize there is a major problem and take steps to solve it. Or just stop inspecting and the failure rate could drop to zero.
