I never heard of the ADEPT LATHE before this post. From the looks of the picture that Paul posted the lathe appears to be a low precision machine that one might find in a carpentry shop to turn a wood handle on a chisel or screwdriver. It looks about a notch away from putting a power drill in a vice and turing the part in a drill chuck. A lathe with enough precision to make watch and clock parts will either have a ball bearing spindle (modern) or a cone bearing spindle (antique). For clock parts the TAIG will deliver the most lathe for the least amount of money. For watch parts only the Sincere will also be the most lahe for the least amount of money. These are both good machines, they are affordable and, affordable accessories are available for both machines.
