So... I bought a lathe and a bunch of other tools.
This is my first one doing everything from scratch.
I intended a billiard except I removed a lil too much material for a proper billiard.
5.5" x 1.75" , .75" chamber

Not shabby, not shabby at all, in fact very nice for your 1st one from scratch. Wish my first one looked that good.
Got a Mathews lathe too I see, nice, looks just like the one I have. 10x30?

Thank you and yes sir PM 10/30V with dro.
I LOVE IT!
I didn't get the DRO with mine, thought about it but, I figured I have enough problems just counting to ten and using the right side of a ruler and didn't need to complicate my life any further. LOL! It was a great step for me getting it becuase I use to turn pipes on this, a 1949 Craftsman 6" lathe.

Easy for me is a Fractional Dial indicator, not a Decimal digital read out, just old fashion and stuck there,
Heck I can't even operate a cellphone but, I can completely disassemble an old dial phone and put it back together and have it working better then it has in 40 years. LOL!
