    Adam, that is a real nice machine you have there. Only problem is that it's TOO clean.

    Would be nice to have one of them mills for my new shop but the only one I've found here in the orlando area is a big Cincinnati for around $3500 and the condition is not great.

    Thanks Bill. It's a sweet machine that I couldnt pass up. Be sure to keep us posted on the Quartet rebuild once you get back on it.

    You did an awesome job of the repairs to the ole B&S! I hope it serves you well. If you have any videos of it cutting I would love to see them. The old man that used to run that machine told me it was solid!

    Its not just a mill its a K&T

    I know I love mine, they are a joy to use. You may want to start a thread about your problems. May be a common failure for that style of machine. There are a couple a guys here with quite a bit of K&T experience.

    Haven't ever quite left the Quartet. The temporary VFD for that 'pancake' style power traverse drive motor came in a week or two ago. Will be testing rapid and regular Real Soon Now.

    With ZERO documentation around, I want to record everything I can about that 'sometimes' glitch you had mentioned BEFORE tearing the feed gearbox open to find and fix it. Not yet certain it wasn't just the Gilmer drive belt under the knee skipping a tooth under peak loading.

    Bill
    I'm anxious to see what the problem is with the rapid.

    Man that's one nice looking horizontal - Wishing I had room for one as they come up often here on C-list. Maybe one day.

    Great adventure Adam.

    Adam,

    Just got a chance to watch the video of the shaft you were machining at work and great job as always, thanks for posting it. That belt sander was really neat, is that a purchased or shop built attachment and do you have any more pics of it?

    Chris, its a manufactured belt sander. I have one in my own shop also. great for polishing shafts, and cleaning them up too. I cant recall the company, but they are listed as crankshaft polishers. Mine uses the 2" wide belts.

    Adam, greetings from a local! I just finished browsing your thread and must say you do some impressive work. I'd run across your YouTube channel but didn't realize you were in Pensacola. As a hobbyist, I also enjoy seeing you work on all the older manual machines. Keep up the good work!

The videos and sharing of my work and projects have added a much needed enjoyment to my trade, and making the videos are pretty fun.
    Thanks to everyone here that has been behind me since the beginning, and your continued support.
    I know that I dont post much on the thread anymore, but most of my interesting work is in the videos, and I like to keep that separate from the forum.
    This thread seemed to be all but abandoned by Adam in favor of posting on Youtube. Not everyone can watch Youtube at work. I for one really liked reading about Adam's stuff and looking at the cool pics and projects he had going on in his shop.

    I have to admit that I have damn near stopped posting pictures and updates on my thread here. It's not because I don't want to, but because of being in the Youtube videos so much now. I put a lot of my daily work in there, most of it being in my home part-time shop, but do share some of the bigger stuff I do at work also. I know that a lot of you enjoy seeing the pictures and stuff here when your visiting the forum, so I will continue to post some updates when I can.

    Adam
