I gave up using talc and just play bareback with no additives. At this point, I don't even know why I ever started using talc. It feels slightly better to use talc for about the first rack, but then...

Not sure you can thread with this lathe, maybe I'm missing it but I don't see a threading index dial. No threading even makes it more over-priced, if that's the case.
