Just took delivery of my CQ9330C Chinese lathe and today i unpacked the
4-jaw chuck. I've imported the lathe direct out of China by doing a group
buy which has made a huge saving. Anyway, i live in New Zealand, that little
country down by Australia. The neighbourhood i live in is called Huapai a
surburb of Auckland city. Maori, the Indigenous peoples' of New Zealand,
gave this area the name Huapai and I am told it means place of good food.
Anyway, i take the chuck from it's packing and i immediately see a logo
which i immediately recognize.... HUA-PAI. How weird is that, just have to
ask? Imagine that a manufacture way up there in China uses my home town
native name for their product!!!
OK just a bit of trivia, but the lathe sure isn't too bad either.....
