I am keenly interested in that.
I will see what I can do on that end, Rod.
Scotts, I'm glad its done too. I think your comment about the Safety Nazi was probably right on, as I moved the sensor mount down to lessen knee travel. It was so high that no one in their right mind would operate in that position.
So the thing was done and he crawled back into his lair.

I've been enjoying this thread! Please keep an eye out for a machine for me..

I've been looking in the $3k range for a knee mill. I'd go above that if I had to. Most of them are in Onterrible which would suck for both shipping and getting out there to check the machine out. Not that I know anything about them yet to check it out.

I bet he is sleeping after a 14+hour road trip. He sent me this at 12:30 last night.

Bed shortly after 1. After I looked through end mills and cutters section of the Quality Cutting Tools flyer I had beside the bed of course. Went through Wainright on the way home. It was a nice drive. Good pavement and not much traffic.

So is this Gerry's Bridgeport? Or where did it come from?

Yes, this was my machine. I had Kevin and one other guy both very serious, and Kevin just beat his ass by a day and a half.
I am pleased to see it go to a member who is learning about it and will look after it.

Now comes the job of rigging the new(to me) one into place. It took 4 hours with jacking and come-along to get this one freed up for Kevin, and I'm trying to get my kid to help....but he is too busy.

Sounds like you need to host another GTG.
