Watchdog,
Please tell me about the hands on class. I looked at the NAWCC page and it looked like it cost about $1000.00 for a basic lathe class. For that amount of money you can purchase the lathe and cross slide with an extended bed, a tip over T-Rest, the gear cutting device the motor, the sensative drilling attachment, some collets and the mounting board. I may have misread the price so what is the actual cost of the course? Do you have to go to their location to take the class? How many hours or days does the course last? After the completion of the course, will you know how to make staffs, pilar plates, gears, pinions, balance wheel, winding stem and screws? It sounds like a good thing so please let us know.
