    If you have not already done so go to Otto Frei and look at the BERGEON lathe with all of the attachments. It goes for $39,000.00. You can get the same setup from Sincere for about $2000.00. Both of them are excellent, ultra precision watchmaker lathes; but so is your Levin.

    david, et. al.:

    I just wanted to touch base with you on my lathe equipment. Per various recommendations, I have obtained the following items:

    collets #5 – #42
    3-way cross slide
    4 jaw chuck
    face plate
    drill head chuck
    2 Levin pivot collets MIB (1 pocket watch/1 wrist watch)
    quick change tool post
    various gravers

    Is there any other tools that I need to get for beginning lathe work?
