    Here's a few shots showing the base T-slots, tail-stock, and how the tail-stock mounts to the bed.

    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.

    Well Gee. If you are willing to do that, it will help us to know what escaped us.

    Fun machine.

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

    I made a video going over aligning and tramming the head and table.

    bl00 asked for some measurements of the table and saddle, with that here are some close-ups of that area of the machine.

    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).

    Here's some shots of the legs too in case anyone needs to replace them. They're 21" tall.

    Well my Triplex shipped out yesterday, so that's the curtain for this adventure.
