      i have a Craftsman Atlas 101.07403 lathe and i've somehow broken the feed screw bearing.
      this part broke at the pot metal...it looks like under quite a lot of side torque.
      is this part designed to break away under pressure? 
      what should i now check out on my lathe so i dont break the new one?

      Ok, thought you might be one who things a VFD is just a light dimmer ;)

      With a chipset, it is not bad but still a lot of parts and would require
      makeing a PCB as most chips these days are surface mount. Not a big deal
      (I do several boards a year.) Just a lot of stuff to debug.

      Not worth my time when you can get a VFD for $120 new. ;) I paid $38 for
      mine (new, surplus).
