    Now, that's a lathe! Kinda makes my little South Bend look like a toy.

      Ha!! Mine is a toy, but it's made a lot of small tools and small parts.

      My little Unimat SL1000 can't twist that big stuff, but I can still hold .0005 all day long. I make the stuff you loose in the chips of that brute.

      I was lucky I got a real good deal on it. It is very good condition. I have a good 3 jaw and a steady rest for it.

    With my limitations, I couldn't do that!!!
    BUT, I "think" with a good lathe with a thread chart, I "think" I could still cut threads???
