    Safelight- I had a windshield replaced by them- they came out, $100, done in an hour. Looked great. And as they were leaving, they said "the next guy that replaces this might not want to because...

    If it were me...

    6" Kurt vise would be mighty handy. Lots of them around at a reasonable price, lots of accessories available.

    The 2 axis all-in-one vises are indeed cheap or too lightweight...

    It's a hand wheel closer, not a lever closer.

    And BTW, RSB (red stripe) collets are the more precise version of SB collets, also with longer noses. Sweet collets. Nice starter set.

    Posters can't delete after the editing period is over, 24hrs after posting, IIRC. But....no need to delete - just start another thread in the appropriate forum with a more descriptive title.

    If you have the patience to level the soil under the slab, then flood it and wait for it to drain and dry, that'll be the best compacted base possible. Plate compactors are an improvement over...

    My guess on the mystery tool was a radius attachment for a lathe. But that doesn't seem quite right.

    A brand (is that a logo on the side of the top slide?) would be helpful - it looks of '40s and...

    I realize Don's already bought a jack, but the AC line has some long reach, hi lift models: DK13HL 29" max height that will get under a 4x4 for $625, or the DH20HLQ for $750, 31.5 max height. Seems...

    Linleys had a smaller spindle than the Bridgeport, with collets of about 1/2" max capacity. See the Linley accessories at Tony's UK site.

    The steady rest is indeed for a Takisawa TSL series, but maybe a moot point if Da' girl is willing to adapt it. (Hope I haven't queered that deal.)

    Your steadyrest is for a Takisawa TSL series. (Confidence level about 95%) If you'd like to be 100% sure, post some measurements and I'll compare it to mine.

    Manny's was an honest reply. Yours?

    "The commie" . Insult.

    Yup, air sealing is really important. Rockwool/Roxul better than filterglas for the DIYer, for sure.
