PM1440E-LB Lathe Modifications

Another happy Precision Matthews Quality Machine Tools customer.
I'm the type of person who likes to tinker and tweak things no matter what it is and the PM1440E-LB is something else to play with.  All articles found under this section deal with my PM1440E-LB lathe in some way or another. Most of what you will find here are little modification which i thought would come in handy along with little tweaks to get things running just how i want them to.
