Here is my latest toy: A Sherline mini-lathe
Got a great deal for it. It came with a nice base, plexiglass backsplash and the 2 drawers full of accesories and stuff.
I have never used one before but I don't think it will be hard to figure it out.
I'm excited! The only problem I see is that this can become a hobby in itself

I have a "Taig" mini lathe.........the motor is a little more bulky than the Sherline, the problem is I have yet to put it together!
I got it off the 'bay.......but I since had to buy a new belt for it and a decent base from Taig.
Like you said, once you get into machining stuff, it might become a hobby in itself!

Talk about a true Corvette fanatic. You get the new Z06 kit, find out the battery from the C6 is still underhood instead of the oil sump reservoir, so you go out and get a new lathe to fix the problem!
Let the obsession continue
Hey, now you can turn some trim ring/spacers for the rear wheels so you can just slide on a set of new Viper tires in back.
