Incredible!


I haven't used a lathe since I was at school, 55 years ago.


I was squirming!!!


Must be a good product if it is still working!

I was waiting for the work to spin out and hit the idiot in the face
A nasty accident waiting to happen. I was just glad the chuck key

Ouch,ouch

That's 1100 of British spondoolies being abused. Brings a tear to my eye.

What a prat
Everyone has to start somewhere just a shame he cannot read the book that came with the machine or at least have a look around youtube
Poor wee machine wont belong before its on ebay with one careful owner hardly used tag and a few rust stains from the blood he spilled
I sometimes wonder about Darwins theory
