People have been asking where I got the lathe. I purchased it from Harbor Freight Tools.
Most all my machining projects have been geared to small machines. Currently, I have Taig lathe and milling machines, but have had Sherline and others in the past.
Both good machines for their intended purposes. I like the Taig machines. I bought my Taig lathe some years ago with just the basics, and a short time later bought my Taig mill as a complete machine, ready to go.
The Taig machines are very accurate and hold repeatable settings, which is very important to me. I worked in machine shops for many years, and after working with large machines for a long time, I know what I like in a lathe or mill.
The Taigs are rigid and precise, and able to do surprisingly hard work for their size. I'm not involved with the Taig company in any way, except as a satisfied and enthusiastic owner. My remarks about their machines are from someone who has put them through their paces.
Taig sells many accessories for their machines, and I've purchased a number of them since buying my machines. There are many tooling items that a person may need though, which are either kind of spendy, or just not readily available in certain sizes.
Sometimes you just have to make what you want. Sometimes you need a certain tool to complete a project in progress. That's mainly what this website is about, along with some engines and other projects.
You'll notice that some of the tooling projects are rather utilitarian, while others are "prettier". The main consideration in any case is an item built with the accuracy required for it to do its' job properly. I also have a 6" Atlas lathe, which I use for all my "big" projects.
A really nice machine, and I have a separate page for it. Scroll down until you see the Atlas section and click on it if you're interested.

We supply lathe machine guards, milling machine guards and drilling machine guards. I am very happy with the lathe so far.
The only thing I can say that needs improving is the head stock clampdown doesn't always stay tight. Vibrations sometimes loosens it. In this metalworking project Jim walks us through the steps required to build a handy cross slide retractor for the lathe.
This modification simplifies the threading process by allowing the user to quickly retract the threading tool away from the part with a lever rather than by using the cross feed dial.
