    If that gouge bothers you I would think one could take it a bit deeper and then inlay it with some flat CRS (.060" - .125") which sticks above the table by about .010" held in place with some (locktited) flat head screws the heads of which go into a partially countersunk hole (2/3 depth of screw head). Then flycut down to the table as near as you dare and finish by hand. If you can get just the slots in the screws above the surface to be cut when the screws are fully tightened you won't know they are there when the heads are cut off. With care I would think you could get to within a couple of thousandths of the table while cutting only the insert if the head is trammed well. Some coarse emery and some dykem would assist you in sanding down to (but not into) the table. And then maybe a fine finish with an orbital sander over both the insert and surrounding area of table while checking with an indicator.

    Actually, that might not be a bad idea...

    Only one table gouge?
    Great deal!
    Some used mill tables look like Swiss Cheese.

    Hey, at least the woopsie in the table is neat! The one in my old BP got deeper one end to the other!

    I like Laguns, and it looks like you got a real nice one. The glow of acquisition will wear off but it will be replaced with a feeling of deep satisfaction which will last for years. Good on you!

    Nothing wrong with the label, it is a southern hemisphere machine so just send it to me and I will give it a good home.

    must be the same the same fool that ran the wells index I just sold. has the same mark in the table about the same place and about the same length. but it is a nice machine and you will get a lot of use out of it.
