    yeah, the main thing we do with the fine feed wheel is use it to "jig" when changing gears on the feed. Tho there are so MANY different ways to use the machine, it is probably useful for something.

    It's too soon to say.
    Straightening the table has certainly changed exactly where the dovetails were making contact.

    Did i need to shim it he gib?
    The 1968 bridgeport needed a .015 shim on the gib, I re-scraped the saddle, I don't even know what it had before, it was a basket case. i don't even know if all the...

    no, or, it's not complete. I think I have the outer hub of the harmonic drive and the brass gear, but not the motor. the motor was smashed, perhaps the head was dropped on it.
