Well, I had a friend ring me saying that he asked the seller to hold this lathe on lathes.co.uk. He asked me if I could use this and I figured this would be ideal for my protyping business. Anyway, this is my new lathe: http://www.lathes.co.uk/advertphoto/151109schaublin135/ I have more photos to follow. My friend Steve is organizing shipping for me and I can't wait to use this for hard turning. Anyway, I am very happy about this purchase and can't wait to give this a whirl. Can you tell I'm happy? Paul.
