I went in on Saturday to use the Sherline lathe, and while I finished my project, I was running into some issues:
- The steady rest, and follower rest are both missing their clamps. These need replaced.
- There are no cutoff tools in the drawer for the Sherline lathe.
- A live center for the drill chucks would add a lot of utility.
- The DRO for the long axis (Z I believe?) is non-functional.
Essentially I was working on a long piece, but had to make very shallow passes to keep from knocking it out of the chuck. Presented with the limited parts, I had to modify my design to keep it workable. I also found myself really wishing we had the compound slide attachment.
