    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.
        Gigitty Gigitty!!!!

          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.
