"What is the smallest increment on the lathe and what is the parts availability concerning replacement v-blocks?" Also confirm if it needs a left or right-handed bit! Thanks !

For every increment on the dial, I believe its 1/1000 of an inch.

Well, the "canadian distributor" answered, and said that he doesn't do it anymore. And he doesn't know who is responsible for it now in canada, so I left them an email asking them.

Really? which integy lathe?

I've been using a integy mod fashion(v-blocks) for a year and it works awsome. *But* integy no longer sells the v-block mod fahion lathe, they only have BB blocks. If you buy BB blocks they WILL foul up with metal chips and after that it WILL give you crap cuts unless; you either lock up the bearings or replace them(if possible). It's your money and your decision but I'd strongly recommend against BB blocks.

But is it a good lathe? I mean its pointless if its not a good lathe....

And I feel that a good lathe starts by having vblocks rather than bearings... as I have been told by just about everyone that has a lathe that a bearing lathe will get copper shavings stuck in it and eventually jam.
