Default Any comments on the Trinity Comm Lathe?

Has anyone used a Trinity Comm Lathe? How is it and has anyone had any problems? I used mine and it doesnt go all the way to either end of the comm. Sucks because of that.

Mine is fine, at least after I removed those annoying bearings. The slides must be hitting something to prevent full movement, the motor is very close to them, check if they're touching.
The thing I don't like is "stickiness" in the slides, but that probably wears out.

I have had one for about a year now. I haven't had one problem besides replacing a bit. There are stops on the lathe make sure that it isn't hit the stop.

I have an original Trulathe 1. The only problem I have is a little play developing in the threads. But it still works well.
