    Swarfless's scan of the old catalog....

    FWIW I doubt this will help a lot, but let's put it out there in case Lydia comes back & checks this thread. If she shows the pic to her grandfather maybe...

    No, I understand that. He currently works for a *benevolent* employer who's looking after his employees.

    That doesn't invalidate my point - it's still a form of peonage. Working and being bound to...

    But - as we have seen - the paperwork can be and *is* a fraction of the amount in the USA as it is in other countries. So your argument here breaks down to a claim of USA exceptionalism - that you...

    Come on - this has *months* of entertainment left in it yet. Nowhere near the 'flogging a dead horse' point.

    Great entertainment. I'm waiting for November 1 when the world ends and the Channel...

    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less."

    You wouldn't recognise a fair trade deal if there was one on the table, judging by past ones, so that's a non-starter.

    In addition, say Trump *is* re-elected in 2020. He still only gets another 4...

    Can't disagree with that, on past performance.

    That's what happens when you allow private companies to own your political representatives. Plus, either don't bother to vote at all or never...

    You as a country already *spend* the money.

    It just doesn't go into first-level (doctors, nurses, hospitals) expenditure. It goes into the *health care industry* with the massive parasitic...

    I don't - far, far too many of the lies are simply an insult to my intelligence. Just how stupid do they think I am?

    Interesting - I thought they were long dead.

    I'd dearly love to know if they actually made my metal planer here in Australia, or if it was a re-badged import. And just when it was made. I've never...

    Lydia, I'm not trying to be nasty, a lot of meta-information goes missing in a pure text based system.

    First the image is for a much later lathe than what you describe so of little or no use in helping anything, sorry. It's from a 1970's or newer machine with a geared head and camlock spindle.

    Sounds great, not going to happen though. Your own industry would never permit any of this because it'd hit their profits, and they own the politicians, not the voters.
