    Bed-Mounted Turret Attachments

    Russ, Do you have any posts that show/discuss your turret? My '43 10EE shipped with both a regular tailstock and a turret assembly (Unit Assembly No. EE-8-1-9), which is long gone. I've never been able to find any information about what that turret assembly consisted of. Cal

These rules will go into effect Wednesday, August 4, 2021, once...

    photo posting issues

    I bet the photo came from an iPhone. For some reason iPhotos don't play well here. I routinely post photos from my Canon cameras and they come in full screen when the auto-resize does its thing. I've alerted site admin to the problem, but so far, no action has been taken. Cal

    OT? Any Navy Machinery Repairmen know about I-beam trolleys?
