I'm in the process of machining the same T-slot cross slide casting from Andy that you machined and wrote about, and would love to borrow that gib spreader tool you got from gunsmither if its still available, are not too much trouble to send. I'm happy to pay your postage costs. My computer suffered a lightening strike last Tue (June 9) so I'm only able to access PM on a limited basis now from work, but will try and check for a response ASAIC. Or call me via cell at 757.647.0571. Thx Paula! Steve PS: Love your posts on milling that cross slide. Nice job!!!
I'm glad you enjoyed the cross slide thread. The spreader clamps were sent to another forum member back in March. I don't recall his user-name offhand, but if you email or PM me, I can give you his contact info. Or, perhaps he will see this and speak up.
