The other option for a small lathe seems to be the Q-cut from Greenwood,
but that's more than twice the price at £50 :(
Any recommendations, other suggestions?
BTW, I just had to make a complex part from Inconel, and as I only have
one bit of stock the right size I decided to make a test piece from ally
first. Wow! It was so easy .. 0.01 mm? peasy, go for a micron .. I'd
forgotten what machining ally and even mild steel is like after
struggling with stainless, copper and superalloys all the time.
