I will be interested in future pictures of a project to add a dial to your ENCO lathe. For reference, this is a picture of my tailstock quill handle removed.
Silverbullet, I've already got the machinery bug! I'm hoping to get everything set up and start seriously looking for some jobs within the next month or two. There will definitely be some tweaks to the machine but overall I am very pleased with it. I have the tools and instruments to do a nice alignment job, so if I can cut some nice parts soon I will be very pleased.
