Our whole team shoots pumps for practice at least once a month and i built most off them. We have a pretty good pump crowd and market out here.

That's fairly light actually. My Clausing 5900 is over a thousand, and my Sharp Mill is over 1200, and both are considered lightweight machines.

Trust me, if there's one thing I've learned in the 10 years I've worked as a machinist, it's that the heavier the machine, the better.

The minilathes are great project for CNC conversion, because they can be picked up so cheap, I'm thinking of getting one just with this in mind.

Oh i totally agree we have a real machine shop at work and quality machines are thousands of pounds ( i just wish they didn't have a strict home project policy) That however doesn't change the fact that i never wish to move the lathe again lol.

Not to mention the cost was right, and they all run on 110v.

The mini machines were convienant and filled their purpose even as i replace them with newer, larger better, versions. Now that im out out of college and have a good job i can get back on track to updating my shop

Well, I have a mini 7*10,and I too find it handy as hell for small parts and bolts ,valves etc. That maxnc is a horny setup, I want a good manual mill with dividing head. I WISH I could find a nice big atlas or such to rescue. Nice shop.
