    Keep your eyes open. I got a used Darex E 90 on eBay *with* the ball end mill attachment in addition to the standard straight end mill attachment. It also came with about 35 collets and three grinding wheels (two of which were new) and some other extras. They do not show up very often but they do show up.

    Gary: Electronic copies of all of the manuals for the E 90 are also available for free, despite the fact that some are for sale on eBay.

    If you can't find the manuals let me know and I can email them to you (it did take me quite some time to collect these).
    Based on your selfie you could definitely use all the help that you can get.

    Free hand grinding of lathe tools, I never grind the top rake unless its a special finish tool, my old mentor told me that was what files are for (finish work). The point being, that when using a 4 position tool post the tool is always on center of the work if no grinding is done on the top of the tool bit.
    Grinding the top rake is OK if one uses a rocker tool post or a special holder to readjust so that the center of the tool to the work can be reset each time the top rake is resharpened.

    I like your grinder mountings, several in a small space......

    I like your videos on hand grinding tools, a lot of those skills are not being developed today.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your skills!!

    Dunno what sort of 4-position tool post that might be, but my 4-position toolpost has vertical adjustment screws with over 10 mm travel. That seems to be the norm these days.

    Cheers

    It came with the Chinese 12 x 37 lathe, bought new in 1986, height is non adjustable on the tool post, these days I usually use carbide tools, they have a bit of top rake built in.

    This one isnt the dovetail design with individual holders for the tools.

    Ah, OK.
    My lathe came with a rocker but I replaced it with a QCTP. Is this worth considering?

    Cheers

    yes it is worth considering...not only that but I would really like one!

    I have been retired over 10 years and the lathe doesnt get the attention since the 1100 showed up ha!
