    What is the construction of the tailstock like on these, if you don`t mind my asking? I have been looking for something very different and better made than the Sieg style lathes. I am familiar with these, but have never seen one.

    Hi Carlos,

    Thanks for your interest. I wasn't sure so I went down to the shop and disassembled it. The barrel and screw are steel. The handwheel is plastic. The tailstock itself is die cast, it is too light to be steel but I'm not certain what it is. I did a quick Google search and couldn't determine th e material from there either. Was that helpful?

    Yes, thank you. I was concerned about that - is it like a hollowed out piece of die-cast? I saw someone had issues with that on a proxxon pd-400. Not the end of the world anyway.

    Yes it die cast and hollow but it has several ribs that span the entire cavity. I haven't read of any complaining about these. Let me now if you'd like to make an offer. I have a 10: Sheldon now so I'd like to recover the space on my bench.

    Steve
