Here's some other shots of the head. You can see the new head clamping plate in one photo.



I have a confession as well...

I've decided to sell the Triplex. I already have a buyer that I feel will take care of the machine. It's really clever and fun to work with, but it's limited range of motion does suck some utility out of it. I know I'll likely regret the sale, but I'm short on time and space and all that bit and have lots of other machines that are vying for my attention.

In the mean-time, now is your chance to pester me for photo's, dimensions, video, and anything else you would like to have documented before I get it boxed up and on the road.

You can only sell it if the buyer is a member or becomes a member and we can keep track of it!

Also, here's a 2AM center I finished today. Since my machine still had the original driving plate, I wanted to make a center to go with it and complete the set-up (minus the drive dog, but IMO those tend to be job specific and can still be found).
