MrWoopee do you remember where it was actually made? China or Russia or a mix? At those prices one could almost by a second for spares.

China. The options are to ship from China or Russia, but they can't ship to the U.S. from Russia.

How about making a deflector to keep chips from falling on the dial?

I lock the carriage and flip the compound slide to 90; it has a graduated wheel.

Now I feel all inadequate.

I sometimes do that too but remember that 90 degrees isn't *exactly* 90 degrees (unless you have an accurately set detent). When you do that you are turning an unknown taper.

This is true; I do that to quickly get the desired depth, then switch to carriage travel and cross slide indexation to get required diameter.
Obviously, this is not adequate for high precision, but works for me most of the time.
