Did you ever find any manual for your lathe? I'm going to look at one tomorrow trying to find out more about them.

It looks great, Have you tried screw cutting on it? From what I can tell it has everything on board so I won't have to swap out gears
I'm going to be making metric parts for European cars.
Anything you think I need to be on the lookout for?

Yes it should cut metric and standard threads I haven't cut many threads on mine yet when I did it seemed to do great. As for what to look for nothing I can think of just the standard stuff you would look at when your checking over a machine

Did you find a manual (assuming you still have the Millport)?
