    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...

    On my light mill (schaublin 13 with iso 30) I find the my facemill with SEKT inserts works really nicely. I picked up a cheap one to test it out and have been very happy with it. I think mine is 50mm

    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)...

    This is borderline subject matter but it could be rephrased to be more acceptable. The core question is if one should start learning about machine tools with a router or 3d printer which if you don't...

    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.
