Well another day of fixing stuff working on the 3ph motor conversion. It was kind of hot today, and when I came in from the shop, Wife asked how much a new lathe would be so I can get back to some of the project and none of them for her. She said she let me get a new one, WHAT! Where did that come from? I can replace my old clausing? Yep, you been working hard on the shop equipment and you have not been fishing but once this year. I didn,t know what to say, what should I say, I know some thing is coming at at me and I cant see it yet.
Thinking of a new 12x36” gear head PM.

Cancel all of your credit cards and freeze your bank account before it's too late! If it isn't already. ;)

Holy balls. I wouldn't even know what to say. I would have to go out to the street to check my fire number; make sure I was in the right house.
Sleep with one eye open, maybe even on the couch. Wait a minute....maybe that is a bad idea. Maybe she WANTS you to sleep with her. Hmmmm... very complicated situation here...

Well after 48 years of marriage I find it hard to think she would do something dastardly. How ever I looked on QMT web site and the PM-1236 lathe which is all I can fit in my shop is back ordered. So maybe she looked and knew they are out of stock. Oh well , it was fun thinking about a new QMT lathe for a little while.

My wife says that the way to a man's heart is through his chest with a sharp knife. LOL

At first, I read that as "After 48 hours of marriage" and thought something is up here!

Go 14" and you won't need another , BE AFRAID VERY AFRAID WHEN A WIFE TELLS YOU BUY A NEW TOOL. So go big or go home.

Well I took the bait hook line and sinker I ordered Matt’s PM-1236T ultra precision with welded stell base and a BXA QCTP. It was the only 12x36 he had in stock. Plus it says 100% made in Taiwan and has NGK bearings. So I hope it lives upto the video since I didn’t the one I bought a ticket for, by the way who won that? It sure looked like a very nice lathe. So now I’m at Moms mercy now. I went for the 49.00 liftgate service so I can just roll it in the shop.
Now waiting

Congratulations on the choice of lathe.

Did you get your discount code from the Video, Barz18 gets you 5% off everything. (it's at around 16:00 in the video)

BTW the draw is June 23rd so you could own 2 of them, wouldn't that be a laugh.

David.

Glad to hear you ordered the Taiwan version over the Chinese PM-1236, I wish I had done the same.
Congrats

This is a fact, if you buy any machine from other than Matt you are crazy. They gave me the discount code price, even after I paid full price and Matt refunded the discount. Matt is the man. The service is fast, and QMT will bend over backwards to make you happy. I will be buying all the things I may need from Matt. They the best!
Thank you Matt and QMT, for your great service and fine tools, 5 star service all the way.
