When you get a chance Teach.
Too much to detail this late, but my lathes spindle bore is shy of having a 1" barrel diameter through it. Time for a new lathe. I'm seeing some good looking lathes with a spindle bore of exactly 1". Will a 1" barrel fit a 1" spindle? Might sound stupid to some reading this but its a prime example of how a .500 dowel won't fit a .500 bore. Wondering if lathes have some give on their specified tolerances? Money isn't a problem but I really don't need overkill as this is an introductory hobby for now.
