Quote from: billy rubin on October 19, 2022, 02:16:00 PMwhat are the applications of that level of precision on things that large?

I don't know, but they are showing off their capabilities very well to anyone who needs that kind of precision. They don't mention the accuracy, but I'm guessing that it is quite good as well.

Ooh! This, I am totally giving a watch.

Always fascinated me how they managed to make all them tiny parts even back in the days when precision machinery operated with a completely different understanding of "precision."

Given that most people struggle with legible handwriting already, the added complexity of cursive is an unnecessary burden. It is more practical and efficient to stick to standard print writing.

They are very useful, just not alone. Chucks, tooling, tools to sharpen tooling.  Indicators, indicator stands, calipers. Collets, indexing collets.

And after you have everything you need you realize that the ways are worn slam the fuck out and need to be scraped. So you buy scrapers, surface plates...

A lathe is a deep, deep rabbit hole.
