    OK…I may be a complete nutcase,….but I’m really enamored with a Wolf-Jahn Geneva style 6mm lathe that I’ve found.
    Being sold by a clockmaker who just uses his 8mm more,..and attests that it’s tight and true.
    A nice kit,..but no returns. It looks to be in very nice shape, but some parts in the kit need some light steel wool/oil attention given.
    I’m just driven to by an older lathe, and I do not see myself doing case work, or heavy turning in the near future that would lead me to an 8mm.

    Am I completely mad ????

    David,..I’ve seen where you say you have a 6mm W-J,..and like it…yes ?

    Thanks everyone, for your patience above all else.
