All this guy's other video's are good , injects humour into them . . .
I salvaged one of these Chinese mini lathes , it can't part off metal to save it's life , OK on plastic . . . the tapered roller bearings might be the way to go or Angular Contact bearing's maybe . . .put it on the list .

I've been subscribed to his channel for a few months. His humour is hilarious at times, I love the way he cuts his steel with a variety of implements from pocket knives and scissors all the way to karate chops {-) {-)
