      Tony had seen pics of my machine and the one from Andy St of US and no feedback,the only thing Andy said in a mail,the machine was probably build in sweden by stockholm ms.I had communicated with a guy in sweden who is a tool distributor and he said stockholm ms was a machine distributor...Keachier

                  You know having a part of the forum for IDing tools & parts is a great idea!. We can call it Name that Tool.

                    Thank for invitation,what do you have to be done,old cars,old tools...i'm in love with so much old things usually well made with a sense of aesthetic in the shape or form.I try to reproduce the master that was probably made of wood that can be finish very well.A casting can not be that close to master,there is a bit of improvisation too...When the build up will be completed,I will try to post pics with more details.Keachier

                      But youl'll have to make sure it refers only to tools, not members...

                        We alreay know the name(s) of that one. That could start a very long thread!

                          Maybe we could use some of the new site ad space for "tool of the week".

                            Was that tool of the week or of the weak?

                              A place for unknown machines and parts would be interesting. I'd also like to see a place for " Machine and Tool Reviews". That's the name of a sub forum on the Metalillness site , a metalworking forum (a site with sadly rather minimal participation.) As the name implies, when a member buys a new machine or tool, they post a review of the performance . It doesn't have to be a major purchase. For instance, members once reviewed a digital caliper from Harbor Freight.
