    Hi Bruce - Fair comment although I think I know what the answer will be :skep:

    Going to drop a line to Igor but in reality I know its not an issue, it just would have been good for completeness.

    Well still cleaning and checking my newly purchased FP2.

    I knew some bits needed replacing but made a discovery this week that was a little sad.

    Hi folk

    I'm writing this on behalf of the new owner of my "Old" FP2.

    With the greatest of respect "JZ" this product is NOT the "Original" Swiss Multifix, Euro 500 could well be demanded for a NEW toolpost alone.

    Hi
