Hi guys,

Gordon here from sunny Grays in Essex. I qualified as an basic engineer when I left school and went to thurrock technical college. Only city & guilds stuff, I havent touched a lathe since... ended up working in an engineering office for BT..! The last 15 or so years I have been doing classic car restoration although even that has bitten the dust a bit and your common or garden MOT, servicing and repairs are my trade these days.

One of my hobbies is shooting (target & hunting) and some of my silly questions coming up are "which lathe" yes I know it will have been asked a million times before but I will ask again because I really don't have a clue.

I am on the look-out for a cheap screwcutting lathe with hollow headstock spindle so will need some advice. ttfn
