Not mine unfortunatelyThats an unusually clean lathe what is it?
ThanksVery nice. What rpm and can you take a close up of the tool tip please?
No that's great thanks.Thanks
1700rpm and what I would to refer to as a finishing tip I'll get a pic of the box next time for the exact number , very nice to use and easy to get a good finish in my experience if I'm at a higher rpm and decent feed rate.
This is the tool here as I said not certain on exact tip but will find out

No that's great thanks.
I also use these pointy tools for light cuts and finishing. They give a much better finish especially on my old Triumph lathe which only goes to 1000rpm.
They probably work just as good. The Taiwanese got pretty good at making lathes.
Well I don't think they would mind since their official name is Republic Of China.Taiwan have been making good lathes for many years. They would NOT be amused to be called Chinese!
I have a Feeler lathe which they say is just as good - if not better - than the Hardinge it was copied from.
