hello all!
its been a while -- just spent the last hour 'catching up' .. glad to see everyone is still up to their old tricks... hope you are all well.

GAE-- great project!

the busy season is coming back and i've had less and less time to get to the old computer.

cutting to the chase:
i've gotten a fair bit of email about some of the metalworking equip i've posted to the web (like the tube rollers/benders here)

.. add to that the unforgiveable lack of tech-hobby info available here in italy..

i whipped up a little website. its my first and i'm sure its full of mistakes.

i invite you all to take a look at www.sigma-f.com (http://www.sigma-f.com)

it is, however, all in italian.

but! ... the library section is growing and i hope to include plans/drawings (metric!) for all the equipment we've built in the shop. (eg tube benders, sheet metal brakes, beaders, rollers, etc)

most of the library contains welding-related literature (TIG) but i hope to include some more machining projects. as it stands its a bit anemic with two artciles re: HSS tool grinding and a short write up on homeshop heat treating (making a tap).

again, i know they're in italian.. but the shop drawings should be universal.

and all the pictures are in english!

again, glad to have 'caught up'
take care,

Nice job! As for mistakes, I'm not going to criticize. Italian sure isn't my first language http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

thanks. its not my first language either! i lost some creative control.. wrote it all in english and had a kind fellow (not a metalworker http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//frown.gif translate it for me.

direct links to the tap/HSS sections if anyone is curious (i realize they might be hard to find!):


nothing too exciting, i know.
