That is a thing of beauty! The links to previous posts really do put it in perspective. I have to wonder, as did Evan: will you ever dare to use it? You've got a museum peice there.

I'd go nuts just trying to figure out how to adjust all it's possible adjustments!

Thanks for the kind words guys ..it makes it all worth it ........I've no one else to share my work with.
Yes I will be definitely afraid to use it.
it would be great if a museum or fritz Werner themselves came along and said here's £2000 can we have it ..........but I can't see that happening.
I've still my Bridgeport to do ...plus my smart and brown lathe.........Bridgeport will be done in off-white cream colour (often called old English-white).
all the best.....mark

I'd be delighted for you to share your work with me - would you do it all to my Bridgeport? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif
