Thank you for the information for my son. My name is Jill and my son's name is Noah. Since I check my email more regularly than he does, mine would probably be the best contact. It is [email protected] Thanks again!
Hi Richard and greetings from Australia. I am not sure if you can help but I have been looking for a Kingway alignment tool for awhile and after seeing you pick up the one on this site recently I thought I might drop you a line a see if you knew of any for sale or maybe if one comes up in the future you could send them my way. I am an enthusiastic amateur machine renovator. It is only a hobby as I am a farmer by trade. I have done a scrapping course with Machtool a few years ago and have a biax scraper and flaker. I recently also acquired a 6ft Churchill slide way grinder. To help me a little more with machine surveys I would love to add a Kingway alignment tool. Anyway if you know of one for sale now or in the future would love to hear. Do you know what the going price for a good used specimen is? I think your most recent buy was a steal.
We talked about having one there after we had a class in Ashland Wi last April, but they could not find a place to host it. All we need is a heated shop area about the size of a 2 car garage. The host get the training for free. Know anyone where we could have a class?
I hope you mean next month and not next week. I'm not quite ready yet.
I have some tools. One scraper from ground flat file, one carbide brazed to shank and one Anderson tubular with HSS insert. I've got a HF carbide grinder I'm reworking and plan to have a diamond wheel and cast iron lapping wheel mounted. Those not quite done yet. I've got a 12 x 18 granite surface plate and 30" B&S bridge straight edge of untested condition. Got both used and haven't had a means to check them well. I've also got some clamps I can bring if more workpiece hold downs are needed - some wooden carpenters clamps and some large C-clamps. I've got a cast iron grooved lapping plate about 18" square that I don't think fits into anything you're teaching but I could throw it in (figuratively) if it has any utility. I guess also some tubes of spotting blue and a brayer.
