CARRY ON FROM POST ..A FEW WEEKS BACK :-
http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//Forum1/HTML/008081.html

well today I installed the hydraulics after more or less completly respraying the machine.
once I started spraying ...it made the rest look shabby ...it just went on and on until i nearly done the whole machine .
Tommorow, will hook up the electrics and hope that it runs .......this will be the first time I've tried to start it .....so I dont know what to expect!!!
all the best ..mark

I'm envious,they can't paint like that north of the wall. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

You now have a machine to be proud of and could even present it at "Coffee Mornings" http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Hydraulic table travel has my left arm quivering in envy. At least I can switch the table travel hand wheel when one arm gets tired. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

Mark,

Is that a Diaform wheel profiling tool on the wheelhead? I've seen them on Ebay, always wondered where they fitted...

Lovely work!
