Hey. That's my lathe! I agree with Balolia. It is a quality piece of equipment. I've never used the torque wrench on the tail-stock he talks about though. Good in theory I guess but I've never seen a problem with just torquing it by hand. The removable locking lever is a p.i.t.a. sometimes because just as often as not, I'll knock it off and have to retrieve it from the floor behind the lathe. At some point when I really get tired of doing that I'll add a set-screw to keep it on there ...
