What type of bearings are you using?

A cutting head should have a thrust bearing fitted.

Could you please take the head stock and tail stock apart and show a measuring tape where the parts fit together? That would help a lot in showing where the different parts go. You also don't mention your angle braces in your parts list. Do you have a part number for them?

This is a neat little idea and it appears to be an easy way to introduce yourself to working on a lathe, at least in small scales. Thanks for sharing!
