This will be my first lathe . I only want it for smallish work . Can anyone advise me on weither this is a good lathe . I want to be able to lathe various types of metal , are there any limitations on the materials I am able to work with it ? I also want to cut threads on it and need to know how easy it is to get hold of any attachments to do this . Do all MD65s come with a mill attachment point as standard ? Can I get parts easily ? Any other tips or advice will be appreciated before I go ahead and buy it.
