    I think Newall is worth the money if for no other reason than that they are much easier to install as the scales don't require continuous support and the end mounts are highly adjustable. They also...

    This is a very small space (300sqft) just for small (mostly Schaublin) manual machine tools in rural France so anything goes in terms of materials although I obviously don't want something that is a...

    I do not like the Electronica DROs sold by the ironically named Dro"pros". I imported a higher end version directly from India and still don't love it. I would also not suggest Newall as while they...

    That is a very reasonable assumption:) my wife speaks French fairly well which is necessary for functioning down here as there isn't much English.

    That is a great deal, I have been trying to find a slotting head for my 13 for years and haven't found one for anything less than silly money. It is one of those accessories that would be nice to...

    The first thing that occurred to me is I sure hope you have a crane of some sort, those parts are too big to manhandle on ones own. Just taking my Schaublin 13 apart wasn't really possible (safely)...

    I have been highly sceptical it claims of vibration stress relief (and weathering) for the very reasons listed. There simply isn't enough energy to do anything to a casting and any changes would have...

    Thanks for the input guys. The use of form tools makes perfect sense in a pre-cnc world. I guess copying mills could also be used but you do have the same problem of 3d profile milling today in that...

    The exact role of this machine isn't really important, I think it is something like a Schaublin 70 which are used for watch and clock making although they are not an 8mm collet watch makers lathe.
