Here are some shots of the machines in the basement so far:
We found this old Beaver drill press on Craig's List...actually Junior found it and we beat him to it. Sorry Junior. It is in great shape, previously owned by a young metalworker who had three of various sizes.
Yellow lettering...in case we forget what it is.
Lord Godfrey pointed us to the boring machine (thank you Ian). A former IP student was selling it just around the corner from where we are living. It came with a brand new Felder XY table, new Jacobsen chuck and new motor. (sorry about the blurry photo)
I guess Michal likes his fingers or something, he was dead set on getting a Stop Saw. We got to see the demo done in the store with a smokie. Pretty crazy! We haven't turned it on yet, so all I can say about it so far is I don't like the colour scheme
Wee dust collector.
It's still a way away from being functional but just seeing it start to happen is pretty exciting.
