Ken, Thanks for the Nick Carter reference. I looked up his web page and it looks to be an abundant source of information for Taig equipment. I've seen the Taig factory CNC lathe. The version I saw had dual lead screws to move the carriage. I'm interested to see what the kit will do when just the single lead screw arrangement. My main interest will be turning woods and plastics for pen parts. If I need to turn some pen bushings I hope to be able to do that also. Ken Wines
