If your shop projects are like mine, sometimes making sawdust or sanding wood projects , it's time to have a canvas cover made, Dirt likes to stick to the Way oil after you get it cleaned and reoiled. I ve looked at combination machines but ending up finding a used chinese table top mill with a power feed for under $ 200 but it came with odd ball metric collets, . It had a clothers dryer cord-plug but was actuall a 3 phase machine so another $100 for a used phase converter. My old lathe is too small for a lot of projects, but I have a friend that Needed some Dom tubing and I told him I would trade for letting me use his larger lathe.
