Some pics as usual.
The box is rather big. With the standard accessories that come with the lathe, I can bearly carry it up. It is heavier on the left side which is where the spindle is located.
This is Mike, checking on the splash guard and chip collection tray. This tray is tougher than I thought. I'm glad I ordered it together.
Look at that! This one is a beauty... The lathe with a bunch of accessories nicely packed.
The spindle end. The motor is quite big. It has a spindle bore of 20.5mm.
The tailstock and cross slide. The tailstock has a MT2 taper. Strange that this pic isn't oriented the right way up when inserted here.
|The 100mm 3 jaw chuck, chuck key, and drill chuck with B12 taper are part of the package.|
|Parting Tool Holder and Tool|
|Cabalt HSS Steel 5 piece Cutting Set|
|3 piece Thread Cutting Set|
|Additional 3 pieces of Quick-Change Holder. The package has 2 included with the Toolpost.|
|Fixed Steady. This looks like the Travelling Steady from pic. I'll take another pic when it gets home.|
|Splash Guard & Collection Tray with the lathe mounted.|
|Radius Turning Attachment. Always wanted one...|
|HSS Boring Tool Set. These are also for cutting internal threads.|
I rushed over to Ikea in Tampines after I settle my stuff to purchase the kitchen trolley that Mike uses at his shop. The problem with this as table for the lathe is the 2 wooden wheels at one end of the table. With the weight of the lathe, I don't know how long this table will last. Therefore, I decided to go with Mike's suggestion of putting the PD400 on my current bench and use the new table for the Sherline lathe.
Now that I've done writing this post, I'll go fix up the table and clear up the shop to welcome its new resident. Tonight, I'll go through the manual again to familiarize myself with the new machine.
