        good on you Russ, knew it was only a matter of time. You're sitting in the best province in the Dominion to be hanging a welding/machiningg shingle out.

                            Does that have an X Y built in under the rotary? Looks like it weighs a ton.

                              Ya Lew...it does...but...to be honest, I'm a little bothered by how light it is. I thought it would be heavy also. Won't know til I get to mill something on it.
