>your lathe have rough castings especially on the headstock that were painted over? It looks like Jet just crudely ground off ridges on the headstock and didn't smooth them before painting.
So some of the surfaces are smoothly painted while the ridges show through other spots. Just wondering if this is a normal finish for this lathe?
I love this lathe though; it's smooth and quiet which is something I can't say about my larger Delta. Thanks Alan
