    I'm not sure what your intent is for purchasing a transformer. Do you plan to use a buck/boost transformer to step up your incoming 240V power supply to 480V to be able to operate the machine as it...

    There is a plug just under the belt housing on the left side of the head that has to be removed and you "squeeze in" some Lubriplate 105 grease. You can purchase this grease in 1.75 oz tubes which...

    Pretty easy to make one. I made this one from some 5/8" hot rolled plate I had in the scrap bin. Machined a hub and pressed it in. Works fine.

    Sure looks like a nice machine. Wonder if it is being imported to the U.S.

    Rotating the head to lower the center of gravity is a good idea, just be careful while doing it because once it gets past about 45 deg., gravity becomes your enemy. Also, I'm not a fan of lifting the...
