    Nice looking lathe. Must seem like a toy next to some of your big machines.

    Yes, it does. But it's perfect for him.

    Very nice...Camlock spindle is a big plus.
    Did he get a chance to run/cut under power before buying? Looks well equipped, don't see a steady but hopefully it was there.

    If it cuts as good as it looks the in-law is one lucky guy!

    I'm envious.
    Tell your brother that I'm an orphan & up for adoption.
    I'll even write him every week!
