    Assembling The New Toys

    Had fun putting everything together this morning. I know everyone is saying that there is an oil shortage, but it's not true. Grizzley has all the oil and grease on their tools (See pics 1-3) went thru a lot of rags and mineral spirits!

    But it was worth all the work!

    Dan is there much i dunno slop is the best word i can think of to describe the play on the adjusting handles on the lathe. I mean can you use the engraved dial numbers reliably or is there a lot of play before the worm kicks in?

    Hope this makes some sense.

    Oh this is on the lathe by the way
    cheers

    Rob,
    When working with a metal lathe you rotate the handle until you can feel the screw engage when all the backlash is our, then you zero the dial. Then itw ill give you accurate results.

    Haven't had much time to play with it yet, but seems tight. That's the reason I waffled so long about getting the HF version, I was worried about quality. But then again, they both could be made by the same company. I wouldn't know!
