Hi chaps ,
It’s a cheapy Asian lathe 7×12 , I’ve then replaced the headstock internal gears ( from plastic to steel) also replaced the angular contact bearings with high precision taper rollers , extended the cross slide travel and fitted more taper rollers on the feed screws , that and careful rebuilding has given me something very accurate for a fraction of the cost of a swiss machine
To this I’ve added a a powered milling and drilling attachment, this provides the drive to a milling spindle mounted on a vertical slide mounted on the cross slide, division is by direct indexing of the lathe headstock,
This will do from longcase greatwheels down to platform escape wheels
