its goin g to be like stepping up from my dellta 1x42 belt sander to the KMG or my HF 4x6 saaw and then the 14 inch roll in saw that i got (i sooon shouold have all my base tools )

....for teh time being before the itch comes and we rationalize that we can be more productive , efficient and produce better adn nicer products.... as a justification to spend on what we desire
Have fun & stay Sharp..

Thatīs a nice looking machine! Congratulations!
I worked my way through college running a Bridgeport and a Hardinge lathe. My old, crusty boss used to say, "Son, Iīve pretty much made one of everything there is to make.":laugh:
So I know youīve got a list of projects that have been running around in your head over the last couple of years. Whatīs first to make?
If you need some enabling on tools to buy, a Digital Read Out on that machine would be very nice along with power feed. Thatīs the cool thing about Bridgeports, easy to upgrade.
