    Started cleaning the lathe and got a bit carried away lol
    i had some paint of a steel structure I fitted in work and it's fire rated paint so I thought y not

    Need a good vfd for a 0.5 hp 3 phase motor any suggestions?

    where can I get a tool post also as the ones that came with it are home made and don't look good?

    Finished the lathe up to now I have put a misubishi vfd controller and a 3 phase motor on it an it runs well. I can control the speed easily
    I bought new bronze nuts for the top slide and crossfeed and a new top slide leadscrew
    Ive just finished my sx2 leadscrews and am waiting for some alloy to be posted and then I can make the mounts for the delrin nuts that I've also finished
