    Can we have a separate sub-forum for the likes of Gordon, thermite, and Emmanuel? Don't ban them, just give them their own play area so they feel like someone is listening. I swear that would clean up 95% of the crap around here.

    So how did the Swasey work for you ? I always thought those were pretty cool. The mechanical ones were, anyhow.

    The machine itself was awesome (1980 I think by memory). Bought it from a dealer straight out a college where it had been hardly used, and a little abused!
    Fanuc 0TA control which was a drag as it wouldn't accept editing or adding comments in a program.
    The machine was big linear rails and it would hold 2tenths (5microns) all day. It also had a very neat swing away tailstock that you could keep out the way when not needed.
    Run the first part in the morning, and it would come out the same as last night.
    I replaced the machine with 2 Siemens shopturn lathes which were 2" bore and box way. Again great in their own right (the control is the dogs bollox!) but the X would drift upto 20 microns when warming up. But it was progressive so not bad.

    When we first bought the villa in Zhongshan, we've go upriver from Hong Kong not on a catamaran or hydrofail as we use to Macao, but a hovercraft, navigation was that dodgy.

    Now, either of Zhongshan or Zhuhai/Macao can be reached by the new bridge. If you don't mind the trip taking LONGER.
    Wheres your spot at in Zhongshan?

    Whoo Whoo! do ya have any of da evil spirits visiting ya der? Before I moved into Shiqi Ocean city I was looking in Morning star. Lots of the superstitious Chinese (Basically all Chinese) told me they wouldn't visit because it was built on the old Zhongshan execution grounds. But, Even in Ocean city you can still hear the executions from the new place then watch the mobile organ harvesters drive out.

    I get the floods where I'm at too, and learned quick not to get caught in the tunnels running between Torch Economic Development Zone/ Ferry Terminal and Shiqi.

    Do you know this chick?

    Lydia Wang, Shes in charge of the W.F.O.E.'s in Zhongshan. (Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise).
    Try to avoid her, She will exploit a foreign business for all it's worth to make the PRC look good. As you can see shes like all other PRC government officials. Has to have a big desk with nothing on. Even for this picture we had to bring the flowers!


    Anyway, Enough about China for now.

    Congrats to the new Moderator on inheriting the responsibility to watch over the largest group of opinionated assholes to ever grace a machine shop.

    I have always loved it when you contribute to the rebuilding forum as it is obvious you know what your talking about. Please learn how to delete insane boring posts from fake contributors who write idiotic BS most of the time.

    My distate for it was the damned industrial-grade combined-cycle Duck and fish ponds still adjacent when we first moved in.

    Can't recall but ISTR they were cycling 2.5 million Ducks a year above water, more than enough insects attracted by Duck shit and offal volunteering as desert to wotever the factories fed 'em a-purpose.

    No idea what tonnage of Tilapia living off the duck shit and wotever over-throw a duck had been too slow to compete for below water.

    Not much wasted, not even the local mosquitoes, which weren't being waste near fast enough, even so.

    I've avoided Tilapia ever since, plus ANY other seafood must be "wild caught", never farm-raised.

    They still running the famous "world's best" BBQ dog and cat stalls by the river?

    Do you know this chick?
    Lydia Wang,
    Doubtful. Time has passed. Looks a younger generation.

    Congrats to the new Moderator on inheriting the responsibility to watch over the largest group of opinionated assholes to ever ^^^ grease ^^^ a machine shop.
