Hello all I'm new to this forum. I recently had the opportunity to purchase a pm1236. I look forward to learning all I can about machining on a lathe. I know some of the basics of using a lathe. The knowledge I've seen on this forum is second to none. I hope I am welcome here and I'm sure I will have lots of questions. And hopefully one day I can answer some. Here is a pic of the lathe when it arrived.
