    Kinda small, but it can do 4 to 244 threads per inch - and is just large enough to fit a b28 crank for turning bob weights :D

        awesome firebird! i see it came with a quick change tool post. that will come in handy. did you get some tooling with it? i can't even fathom 224 threads/inch!!! that would be one crazy screw. the good news is that you can do it if you want to.

        here is my little toy. i bought it for doing clock work mostly. this one is way too small for automotive work





        these are chinese collets (metric and sae)and a collet holder



        i posted this elsewhere here, but i switched out to a big honking variable speed dc motor and controller



        qctp setup for the little guy





        a little modification so i can spin polish tubes up to 6' long.

        i also have a thread cutting attachment and about 13 patterns for metric and sae threads. i havent taken a photo of it though.

          Not much tooling, but really a non--concern. The lathe is now the second oldest machine in the shop - the other one is a 1952 Delta Toolmaker. All I need for the lathe is HSS stock, drills (plenty of them already), and some end mills that can be chucked/collet'd. :)

          That little machine is too cool. I sent some pics of the Logan to my mentor, he was impressed by the specs of it. It's old, but fortunately the grandson of the Logan lathe founder is still alive and kept all the inventory, so nearly all the parts/manuals are still available.

                      Got this thing off eBay. Came with a little surprise too in the form of a touch screen.

                      Edit: Looks like it also came with a dGPU as well lol. Surprise!

                        Is that a 5th gen X1 Carbon?
                        I bought a 3rd gen off ebay last fall with an i7-4600u, 8GB ram, 256gb SSD, battery life is great, and I was also surprised with 2560x1440 touchscreen.
                        a fair bit older than yours, but I still love it for dragging to/from school. Runs solidworks surprisingly well (but I had to disable SW's stupid ram alerts).
                        It was a fair bit cheaper than anything else with the same specs, no idea why.
                        I even found the matching dock with power brick and cables for $50, so I ran it in lieu of a desktop until this september and it performed very well (besides a lot of Win10 fuckery, but that's it's own problem)

                          T480s. i7-8650U, 24GB Ram, 512GB SSD, 2yrs and change of warranty. Also, apparently, has a touch screen, and MX150 graphics card, neither of which were listed in the listing. I'm assuming it has the graphics card since when I went into task manager, I noticed it has GPU0, which is the intel 620, and GPU1 which was the MX150. I'm hoping to change out the screen for a 4k screen at some point in the future, probably after warranty is up, since the non-4k screens kinda suck in typical ThinkPad fashion. Gonna try to calibrate it to see if that helps for now. There's a handful of other things that need dialing in as well.

                          This is my first Win10 laptop, we'll see how much I like it. My T430s still works pretty well, but it needs another new battery and another new power cord, and I decided it was simply time to upgrade.

                            I've spent a ton of time making it not auto update/reboot without warning after I lost a few things I left open. Also removing the tiles from start menu and stopping it from bringing up an ad for some app every time I try to search for a file, because I inevitably hit enter just as it pops up with some app it wants me to download.
                            This wouldn't be hard, but with every update they seem to patch any existing method to do this, so it's hard to find something that works.

                            Those specs are bitchin'. The new T-series are way slimmer than the old ones, I expected that to be a carbon because it looks so thin lol

                              Yeah lol. Got better specs than I bargained for too. Hoping to make this one last a solid 8+ years. My old one is just shy of 7 years old. It's also noticeably smaller than my old one, probably 3/4" narrower, and quite a bit thinner, as well as a full pound lighter.

                              Still need to get it dialed in a bit more. Screen is way too yellow, hoping I can fix that with a calibration. Two finger scroll is way too slow even though I have it set to max, seems to be limited by Win10. Also having a hard time being accurate with the touch pad. Might just have to get used to it. Unfortunately, there's not as many settings/adjustments available as compared to the old one. Otherwise, pretty pleased with it though.

                                Have you used it much yet ? What do you think of it ? I've got an older Invertec that has served me well so far.
