Hello all, I've been lurking but not posted anything lately. I just started a new job at a fabrication company, and the work is fantastic but fairly exhausting. They rely on me for a lot, which is great, but like I said, exhausting So: my lathe. I'm looking to upgrade, and I found this on eBay. I own a 7 x 12 Grizzly, which is free of any enhancements at this point. Right now, I use it at work when I need a small part for something I am fabricating. I should say I am not required to provide things like this at work, but I like having them there because I get paid to learn as I go in that regard, LOL. I'm planning to bring that machine home so I can get more practice on it, using Delrin ( I live in a second-floor apartment, and I'm not really down with splashing oil on the walls or cleaning up aluminum shavings at home.0 I wanted something bigger with a more powerful motor eventually (space is always a consideration, however), and I already own the 16 inch lathe bed extension sold by LMS, so my new plan would be to transfer this LMS 7x12 over to that bed. My initial plan was to extend the Grizzly, but I had not gotten around to it yet because it is just too hot here in Florida right now to stick around after work to do anything at all, LOL. The amount of accessories that come with this for the price, plus having a 500W brushless motor make it really attractive to me. What do you think?
