    If we're just talking milling machines and not Hor bores I'd go for a " Huron ".

    From what I recall the shop contained quite a few old British made machines. I remember seeing a really nice " Kearns " horizontal boring machine in one of the photos.

    These repairs were of the usual lubrication starvation induced " fire up " type scoring on cast iron slideways. The material appeared to be quite an hard brass powder.

    Sorry matey, the ones I worked on weren't as sophisticated as that one. They just bolted on to the master spindle nose and worked against an external reaction bar. You couldn't easily put a cut on...

    I can't make out anything from that drawing, it's way too small. I've never come across a " DSG " with " Gamet " bearings but that doesn't mean they don't exist. It's just all the ones I've worked on...

    One repair was on the saddle of a big " Richards " Hor Bore, the other one was on the ways of a little " Elliot " Omnispeed centre lathe. Both repairs were excellent with no signs of any drop out.

    Listening to Obama it was clear you were listening to an adult talking wether you agreed with him or not. Listening to Trump is like listening to a very spoilt child.

    I don't honestly think you can compare the two. Obama said he thought we'd be better off staying as we were. Trump has rubbished one of the two candidates in what's basically a two horse race.
