    Smile DIY mini lathe, oil ports and more

    Hi everybody. After a long hiatus I posted a new video about the construction of a home made metal mini lathe.
    I think I have to "rebrand" this as a home made precision mini lathe, as I am persuing a decent precision that seems to be uncommon for other DIY builds I've seen over the Internet. At the end of the construction I will list all the characteristics.
    In this episode oil ports and changes to the top jibs required some additional work, also in preparation for the installation of the cross-slide and the alignment. Also, this led me to talk about the stick-slip phenomenon. So hope you'll find interesting and enjoyful the video.
    Thanks to all you guys that commented and provided feedback to some questions or just your opinion.
    Cheers from the Alps.
