    Hello Rick, don't worry too much about the little problems, you don't need the stress. Enjoy your machinetool and when something about it bothers you, sing out and I'll help you as much as I can. I'm sure others will pipe up with their experiences and ideas. There's a lot of info on this lathe floating around on the net and what various other owners have done to overcome its shortcomings.
    If you find a fault then write it down on a paper and list it in an order of priority to repair/modify so you know what you've accomplished. When you've finished the work (and remember it will take some time to complete) you'll be proud of the fact its your machine done your way.
    Have a look at the work this guy does, this is inspirational. And it just happens when you are confident with your machines.
