 COMMENTS ON ORDERING
1.  The unit can be made without the sandblaster
2 The hydraulic press is a multiple use tool.  Two presses per lab is usually plenty.
3.   IF USING THE SCHOOLS LATHE WE MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING
      SPECIFICATIONS.   FOR A METAL LATHE, just indicate "using a metal lathe"

        FOR A WOOD LATHE, OR SPINNING LATHE
               For a screw on faceplate we need:
                  (1)  Tool post diameter
                  (2)  Spindle diameter and threads per inch,

               A #2 Morse taper is available to use instead of a screw-on face plate.
