I just got a millport sj-1740g this is made by shen jey I know there are many similar lathes under different names victor, acer, osama, and more but I can't find a manual or much more information on it can anyone point me in the right direction
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
