xray racer - Ok I recieved my Eagle mod fashion lathe today, set it up and cut a few comm's. If you decide to get the mod fashion here are a few things you should know.
Firstly soldering is needed to complete it(which isn't hard).
Check the V-blocks to make sure they are perfectely straight or they will wear very quickly and unevenly.
The cut with the included bit is perfect, just awsome.
I used the integy 55t lathe motor and an old 4 cell 1900 pack, speed was perfect.
I'm very happy with it.
