Tmac,
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?

Thanks!
tmac
