You could have given it a clean first :lol: Still nice to see it again.

Great videos =D> But didn't you get the manual I sent you?

I was going to clean it , but then would have had comments ( Why is it so clean ? don't you use it ) :lol:

If the manual you sent me was the file , Yes you did , but I may have lost it :oops:

Thanks for the video Blister, a lovely machine and until I saw the "propeller video" last week not one I had seen before. It certainly looks the business and I think your right to describe it as the Rolls Royce of lathes.

What a horrible looking lathe, I've got to say that along with the mantra ....I don't want one, I don't want one, I don't want one......

I don't know who am I trying to kid. If I spent that type of money on a lathe I think the Mrs would be off.....Another good reason to buy one :lol: :lol:

What didnt you like with the last two hegners?

Adidat

Well

The Hegner HDB200XL was OK for small to medium turnings but did like to do a jig with bigger items

And the Hegner VB36 was a bit like using highly prized traction engine , I had what is referred to as the standard bed model , its huge and very heavy , even moving the tailstock had to be planned as it weighs about 60lbs

Superb lathe but I found using it a pain hence alas its no longer in residence

The Titan now does everything I need and can handle up to 300 kilograms = 661.386787 pounds :shock: :shock:
Problem now is I cant lift that much ( wimp ) and have very little room for lifting equipment :mrgreen:

Have you considered one of the folding cranes from Machine Mart
http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/s...ne-stands/type/any/module/shopcategory/page/1

It's how I solved the problem.
I had one but it took up to much room so is now with a new owner

I have a small block and tackle so may try and use that in some way
