I'm a retired time served engineer, apprenticed at a motor components manufacturer. My career was as a Chartered Engineer, but I've always had pleasure from fitting and sheet metal work. I bought a second hand Clarke lathe over 25 years ago, a surprisingly capable and accurate machine but with poor feel and controls - now much improved. A test bar in the 3 jaw chuck shows 0.0008 tir - not nearly as bad as some would have you believe. I also have a Naerok 350 mill.
