The one thing I would say Randy is if ever I need to turn something a little bigger than 5mm in my Wolf Jahn I turn a piece of the material down to 5mm on my vario-lux lathe so I can then fit it into a 5mm collet on the Wolf Jahn. I just recently made a new ball top to hold the handle for a carriage clock, turning this sort of stuff I find much easier with a hand graver and because the base was 6mm I just turned a section of the 6mm brass rod down to 5mm first. There are always ways around problems, its just coming up with the solution that can be taxing :)
So what did my experience do for you? Will you be buying it?
Paul.
