    Thanks for the reply. I assumed that to be the case but when you learn from books only they are written assuming you have more knowledge than you might have. I have a 1929 manual for new workers pub. by General Electric that was given to new shop workers. Great stuff with pics .... do this ... don't do this. This is a broken tool.... don't use it.... here is a picture of the hospital you will go to when you screw up and do not follow correct procedures. Great stuff.

    Indeed JBM, there are so many places to look for good info. Youtube machinists abound with great videos on just about anything.
    Here is a link with a lot of machine related info including How To Run A Lathe by South Bend.

    Gatz made a very nice setup for his Jet lathe. Blood pressure starts to rise as the arm gets close to the stop and then Click,

    My car! Why MY car? Interesting thing about that vehicle. When those production cars were crash tested, the automotive sized sled was incapable of generating enough energy to simulate a destructive crash. They scheduled tests on a truck platform instead.
    Yeah it's old but has all kind of features I like, even 500 mile tow of tool/ cutter grinder, and sheetmetal shear purchases.
    Sincerely,

    Oh no! Sorry TM51, I meant My Car! It is one of the newer "disposable generation" vehicles.

    Cheers, JR
