What do you think is the most important.....

Terry Daniel
>feature of a lathe? Is it the power, the swing, the length? For me it is the banjo and toolrest. I hate it when the toolrest slips and the end strikes the edges of a nice burl. DAMHIKT! I'll take a poorly machined morse taper; I'll take a spindle that is threaded a bit wrong; I'll take a tailstock that doesn't lock solid; but I won't accept a toolrest that moves. What are your peeves?
