If you go to Youtube there are a whole bunch of videos on the Taig lathe making a lot of different clock parts. This includes cutting clock gears on the Taig. If the motor offered is the standard Taig motor it is large and powerful. The drive belt is an industrial quality belt and transmits power much better than the usual belts used on watchmaker size lathes. There is also a Taig user group on the general internet with people showing different projects and machining techniques. Take a look and soak it all in. The machine is sturdy and can take the abuse of a flycutter used to cut gear teeth. If you ever want to sell the machine at a later time you can sell it for more than you paid for it.
