Taig Peatol Grimberg mini lathe

After not liking some elements of the first lathe I got, the Emco Unimat 4 I went looking for another one, that did have those features or differently than this Emco, while still being quite small in size, but not capability.
An Emco Compact 5 was an option, cause it could also do threading, but most for sale were too expensive for their age/usage and not a lot were offered anyways. The 2 major other ones were Sherline and Taig (also known als Peatol or Grimberg) and even if Sherline also makes a lot of stuff in metric, you just don’t see them sold in EU much, Taig however, even if not metric, was. And then I found one.

Obstructive and Central Sleep Apnea Syndrome

As it turns out, after a sleep measuremement

that where up to 5 breath stops is normal (per hour), I have 66
I snore at 68dB (like a loud telephone)
sleep too light and often wake myself, out of breath or cause of own snoring noise
have (at lowest) only 70% blood/oxygen saturation

which is super heavy on the body/arteries (like running a marathon), which then may/be cause of acid reflux issues and overweight (metabolism troubles). So I need a cpap machine (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)
