    If you have or make a holder to take round shanked tools, an old two flute end mill makes a dandy boring bar. Just grind back one side for clearance, then set the other side level. The cutter geometry is way better than those nasty Chinese brazed-carbide boring bars.

    Looks like your triangular cutter did fine, though.

    I started looking into cutting threads Looks like 1-16 is pretty straight forward and simple.

    I have 2 1/2" bed. I do have a drive plate for using dogs and screws or some thing that fits my spindle I suspose I could bolt a plate to that and then bolt the chuck to the plate. I might loose some precious bed clearance i have a tough time doing much on if its very long but he 4 jaw works for that any way. It would be nice to be able to just toss some stock i a three jaw for basic busshings etc.
    Yes Biggun that's the bugger. I bought an entire newer headstock with the tumbler type reversing gears I hope to use. But not sure yet if everything will fit.Or if all the gears will mesh. Just has not risen to the top of my priority pile.

    BTW: you have a MUCH nicer gear change chart.. I'm printing out your pics to put by my lathe.
    mines a 405 I believe according to the UK website.

    I will get you some better pictures of the plate if you like. it not a proplem . mine has the part that holds the door broken were it mounts to the bed I just leave the door off but at some point I need to fix it. Id like a steady rest but likely will not by one as my other lathe has one and it bigger I ned to make sure the spindle is true and then rip it apart go through every thing and then reassemble. I like the idea of having two lathes so I can leave a job sitting if I want to and not hve to redo the set up. Im getting pretty damm fast setting up the 4 jaw though so its starting to be come second nature and is much more accurate.

    Im going to make the rails today hopefully and weld them in then Ill address the cross memeber its going to be a pretty tight fit but Ill get some thing across there. might have to weld it in

    Hey your PM box is full, no big deal to me, but others might try.
    Just wanted to let you know I got to the PO today, sent it regular mail (hope they don't F-it up ), I sent it in one of those padded white envelope things.
    Let me know when (if) it gets there.

    Welcome to Gunco!

    BTW I haven't seen that in .243 - never knew they made those. I'm a bit more optimistic on the functionality than biggun

    I sent you a PM, BTW
