    Re: Any 7x lathe with 5" 4 jaw chuck owners?

    Re: Any 7x lathe with 5" 4 jaw chuck owners?

    Looks like the 5" 4 jaw chucks will do every bit of 5". I also 3D printed a 6" faceplate that seems to clear the bed just fine so hopefully the jaws stick out no more than an inch or so. I went ahead...

    Where to purchase 1605 double nut?

    Hi,

    I have a G0704 that I just finished converting to CNC and after testing the backlash found its far from ideal at 0.02"+ with the gibs slightly loose. If I remove all slop in the ways it turns...
