    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 )

    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.
