Hello I have been doing HSM hobby wise for a number of years, maybe 20 maybe a little more. Started out with a SB Heavy 10 and as you might know how it is, put a LOT of money getting it in shape. Then I had a idea for something I later applied for a patent on, and needed a faster lathe so ended up with a Emco, out of a high school no less. Dollars and months later it was working good, it was an awesome machine. So now I am downsizing my shop for a retirement move to a condo or town house. The Emco is gone the nice Grizzly medium sized mill is gone and I ended up with a Sieg C3 Mini lathe and a nice name brand drill press. I have also got a lot of interests, so I have a 3D Printer and a Galvo Fiber Laser machine. So are discussions allowed about Chinese lathes, machines and modifications on those? I need to ask and if they are not allowed I will head on down the road. Thanks for letting me in the door.
