    It might be just as easy to use a boring bar and bore it to what you want. Set the compound on the lathe to the lead you want. Bore chamber then throat and run lead with the compound. A sharp boring bar will give a very nice finish.

    Another thing to remember is a lot of these sites are auction sites and the price goes up from hour to hour day to day. To get an idea of price go to closed auctions for the items and see what they actually ended up selling for.
