Mini Lathe

I received a nice addition to the Aruna Hobby Collection yesterday.

Sherline 4000 Lathe

This is a Sherline 4000 Miniature Lathe. It has a 3.5" by 8" working area, and is convert-able to a mill setup. It's pretty solid construction, all the pieces are well made!  I ended up getting a package deal, which comes with the lathe, and starter tools and bits. I've got a bunch of things to build on it, but of course I'm going to start small. The Sherline system has a decent upgrade path as well, so I am able to swap the handwheels out for stepper motors and upgrade to CNC in the future!

Way cool. I've always wanted one of those. No idea what I'd make with it but I'm sure I'd work it out if I had one.
