I recently picked up one of these:
The "Team Auto-Super Lathe w/ Carbide V-Block"
and the lathe is cutting very slight (but noticeable) "ripples" into the comm. Basically meaning that the comm is not cut totally flat, but rather with bumpy variances (which appear to be consistent).
Anyone else have this problem with this (or any) lathe? Is there an adjustment to fix this? Is the lathe screwed up? Should I have not bought this lathe at all, which Integy says is "The most precise & accurate commutator lathe available on the market." (Yeah, I know that's marketing hype, but it should at least be able to cut a straight line.)
