I noticed you are wearing a ring on the left hand . . .
Does this mean you are very married . . . or just not particularly fond of that finger and want the lathe to remove for you ? ? ?

When you switched to HSS at real time, my brain said "rotary auto whittler" and I spit out my food. Brain, you silly goose you ...

Damned if I can figure out why I even watched this as I have no interest in aquiring a lathe but watch I did!
I think his voice and presentation hooked me and I watched and enjoyed the whole video but I ain't getting no lathe, no way.

the Correct answer to the question is :
"sure, go ahead and buy one, your first lathe project will be gear-making"

“Come on, you know they are just using it as a coat rack” 😂👌 That is relatable though, honestly.

BTW it's normally the belt that strips before the gears break, the later models have an overload sensor on the motor (or wherever it is) so if you try n stress it it to much it just stops. The mill I'm still using is from the same factory but that is rubbish.......yet again I've done some good projects with it you just work round the faults hehe.
