As said above, don't underestimate the cost of wheel hubs and wheels, maybe $120 for hubs and $80 for SG wheels. IMO, it's silly not to have hubs for your main wheels. Don't ask how I know this. You'll probably also want a good grinding vise, spin fixture and maybe an end mill tool. Make sure the thing comes with a fine pitch magnetic chuck- a new Walker for a 612 is about $2800. No idea if the imports are any good; you tend to get what you pay for. Spindle bearings are typically not a difficult DIY job.
    Conrad, I need an adapter or 2 for a Harig. Where are you buying yours?
