The parts offered here belong to kits for making high quality, high accuracy accessories and tools for the watchmakers lathe. These kits will fit most WW style lathe beds. Some hand work and machining skills are required for finishing and assembling. Results are not guaranteed as they are dependent on your craft and abilities.
All the parts for all the kits have been designed to be finished without a milling machine (though having one can speed up the process considerably). There are operations that require the use of a watchmakers lathe with good work holding ability, an accurate cross slide and a precise tailstock. Additionally, you will need to have the ability to accurately drill holes of various sizes so a drill press is recommended as well. All threading work can be performed with standard threading dies and taps. For more detailed step-by-step information, please visit my blog at: http://wwlathetools.blogspot.com
