I'm ready to bite the bullet and buy my first lathe. I've always been able to borrow one... until now.
Going to get the Grizzly G4003G since it has good reviews and is a good size and will do what I want. I'll hopefully make it CNC soon but for now it will be manual.
Can any of you give me recommendations on a good starter tooling kit? I don't need anything fancy (Chinese will do) but it needs to be very complete. Holders, knurler, cutoff, boring, etc.
I don't need live/dead centers, chucks, rests, etc. because they already come with the lathe.
BTW, does anyone know what size holders the G4003G quick change tool post will accept?
Thanks folks. Look forward to getting things turning
I'm new to this site and am finding it hard to post to, I've just bought a second hand CJ18A mini lathe and need some user instructions, it has a fault with the hi/lo gearing that i need to sort out , any advice welcome please
Many Thanks Shanie
