556416 drill press vise kit

So, I ordered the vise kit for a Christmas gift to myself and it arrived...less the tee nuts needed to attach it to the table. Really? The tee nuts are backordered?

I have talked myself out of that idea after reading your replies. Now the focus is shifting to whether or not I wan...

shopsmith as a metal lathe?

Hi guys, Its been a while since I've posted on here...but I'm back now :) I have acquired an additional hobby that will require some light turning of soft metals.
