Cool, thanks... I have a small machine shop next to my house... Bridgeport, small lathe (13.5x40), TIG, etc. It's amazing how much use the lathe gets. Had I known how much use I'd have bought a bigger machine. That's maybe the best lathe buying advice... buy the biggest machine you can, but I doubt I'd need to sell a homebrewer on "bigger is better."
Let me know if you ever need a hand there.
