Sorry to hijack this thread, but as we are talking metal working lathes, I have just nabbed a Myford ML7 for a reasonable price, but no tooling :(, I've peeked at fleabay but god ! all seems like gold dust prices. Anyone know a decent supplier of turrets, cutters and general accesories for a ML7 ?
Thanks in advance Karl
Just seen this, but if anyone needs any brazed carbide or HSS for a small lathe, I've recently got a vast amount of it - more than I'll ever use. PM me if you need anything!

That's nice Thingybob,
I have a 90ME which I play with occasionally, used it yesterday to knock up a die holder for 25mm dies as the one with it only takes smaller dies. Cowells are lovely little machines.

Very nice do you actualy use it or is it a show piece you can see the cowels in there very similar
I barely use it to be honest. It's not endowed with a great deal of power and stalls easily on steel. Also, the large base was a mistake. It's awkward to store and lift on and off a bench. I keep meaning to re-configure it with the motor in a box under the lathe, as some of the Cowells were sold. I have the change wheel set and it's handy for cutting small threads under hand power. The Toyo is better and more useable, but at this size the most practical and flexible machine (imho) is the Sherline. I have one of those too, and a Myford Speed 10.

They say you can't have enough clamps my thinking is if you dont cut the wood first you dont need the clamps
