    Meanwhile back at the mill (literally).

    I was cleaning up some rash on the cross slide...mostly cosmetic. I put a .125" x 4.80" chamfer on top edge of the cross slide assembly. Looks a lot better.....have to sharpen up some scraping tools now

    A nice scraping job will cover alot of cosmetic blemishes, ask me how I know this And if scraped all flat and square, makes it much easier align everything back up, moglice, turcite, etc.

    So back at it a little in between working the 68 GTX.

    One more pile of parts off the bench.

    ok its been a while since the last update on the lathe refurb/cleanup

    New to the project is an upgraded tailstock. Thanks to member bsg aka Kevin, I acquired a large quill tail stock. The quill and quill bore were in great shape so it was a nice upgrade. Turns out the base of the acquired tail stock was about 20 thou thicker (and more worn) than my original so I fit my original base onto the new tail stock "top" and rolled the dice. Pretty much won the tail stock lottery because as it turns out the combo of the OE base and the new "top" put the quill about 1 thou higher than the spindle. Now I just need to use it a little and wear that 1 thou out. I also splurged and bought a new nut from miller machining resulting in about 5 thou backlash on the screw.

    As found

    A cleanly refinished compound and cross pragmatically make it easier to set and manoeuver a mag-base DTI holder or take a height or angle measurement than dealing with a random rash of dings and burrs.

    More to it than just "looks good" IOW. Works better for you as well.

    For starters.. you have all the handles intact, it ain't a block of rust, so even IF is still needs milled, shimmed, scraped for some other 10EE fitup, I suspect you'll find a buyer.

    Thanks for the terse response, I appreciate it! My attention span was even long enough to read through the WHOLE thing!
