Spanish snow to match our English stuff! Yes and very interesting as I have a Compact 8 and keep on finding problems with it? The bearings were put in with the pritective oil and the Leadscrew was very rough! Not strange when you look at the most popular spares are replacement bearings and half nuts! The Hobbymat to CNC is good as you at last get rid of the right hand thread leadscrew! All other lathes are Left hand!! £200 is a good starting point as the screws are the first bits to replace!
