    ....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..

    That´s 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, I´ve pretty much made one of everything there is to make."

    So I know you´ve got a list of projects that have been running around in your head over the last couple of years. What´s 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. That´s the cool thing about Bridgeports, easy to upgrade.
