Been trying to get son and heir back from Africa.
1.10AM in Newcastle.
At that sort of price you have a cheap set of castings already machined.
Go into the Stent in Geof Howes Workshop projects 1 and look at what there is.

No for it- you may have to make tool holders but I have Stent drawings!

Had a second look- in the cold light of dawn.
I have built one Stent and have another part built under the bench. Using a Clarkson istead.

This isn't a Stent despite the experts. A Stent has only one wheel and the table top has two parallel Tee slots and swings for reamers.
Digressing, it needs a full set of tooling but a Quorn set will fit and so will a Brooks and so on. Geoff Howe did, as I said last night, also modified his.
What you have is the very nice basis for a 'baby' Clarkson. It needs a lever rack not a hand wheel and so on and so forth. However, I still confirm my earlier views- get it and get John's CD.

And tell the seller it isn't a Stent. Blackgates sells the castings
