Wow! and i works too. had to mill out the the ID from 85mm to 100mm. The big problem was to get the angle head square, true, and level to the mill head. after quite some time getting it trued up,( I used a dial indicator and a square) I crashed my machine on the first attempt. Had one of those mental lapses and used thecourse feed on the qwill to downfeed. Well, after recovering from that, and reseting the head and boring tool, I was finally able to mill the hole to the desired size. I only had to make two special tools to do this job. An adaptor tofit the dial indicator on the boring head, and a sleeve pipe to press the R8 arbor back into place. O" and a puller to remove in the first place. To bad Trud can't come over to see what a fine machinist I am becoming. Doug
