thanks for showing me the lathe mw.

This is a good lathe. However, any ideas on this one?

http://precisionrc.com/cgi-bin/cart.pl?BR=3R0&DT=29

because that one is $20 less, but I don't havea lot of details about it. Just wondering if i can save a few bucks.

I am perfectly happy with the cobra lathe.

I am also wondering what is "cutting lube"? and what's it used for?

rcnewb2004 - The 3 racing v-guide lathe looks nice. I got a integy mod fashion v-guide a while ago for $90 and it works awsome. Any lathe out there should do a nice job as long as; the blocks are squared-up properly, the speed is right, bit is sharp and it's operated correctly.

3-racing lathe looks nice and the price is right. Has anyone tried it? For 80$ that's something I can afford. Not 160$ for a Hudy with no bit

Yep, the 3-racing is affordable for me too. I'm looking at the HKU-10 with carbide cut.

Anyone with bad experience with this?

That lathe looks really nice for the money. I've never heard of 3 Racing before. Looks like they might be based in Hong Kong. You can get some smokin' deals on equipment from Hong Kong if you know where to look.

Regarding the cutting tube, where did you see that posted?

Hm... seems everyone's at least heard of 3racing.

Cole: u have the link of the HKU-10? i seen the HKU-1001 and 1002 i think.

If that's the case I may just go ahead and just get one of these lathes.

Thanks for allthe help guys.

I used an old Cobra for years till it broke. I bit the bullet and bought a Hudy lathe and I must say it is worth every cent. I love this thing.

There's a fault in my pasting... the right number is HKU-1002 (Carbide). The HKU-1002D is with Diamond bit.

Which caarbide cut do we need to choose from 3RAcing?? The right hand or left hand sided?

Left hand side, because the bit will move from right to left according to the pictures, and the tip is on the left hand side of the bit.

DavidAlford: I have some hudy tools, and i must say that hudy is the sh*t. They are the best tools out there. Unfortunately, hudy knows that too, so its prices is also sh*t.

For a newb (me) that's never owned a lathe before, its not the best idea to get an expensive lathe incase i end up breaking stuff.

rc_bam226: So left hand side bit for HKU-1002?
If so, I am going to get it in a few days.

I am getting sick of going to the modelshop to get my comm lathed. (I have no idea how much the guy is taking off each time too)....

On his hudy, he takes off one "increment" (so 1 big bar), with each run on my comm.
I dont' know how much that is, but he does it like 4 times! (I did over gear a bit, but still that sounds like a lot).

And I think he's trying to "do less work"... so taking big chunks out of my com...

I do have one concern is that 3racing, doesn't tell me what's the smallest increment I can make on the lathe. ANd I dont' know what's an acceptable number interms of the smallest increment that should be on a lathe. So some information on that would be nice also.

For your first lathe you can't go wrong with a cobra. Great for learning. A lathe is one of the best tools you will ever own.
