That's good to know!

Re: Great service

My experiences with Enco, which started about the time I joined here, were always exceptional -- great pricing, quick shipping and their 'free shipping on $25 or more' offers saw me buy things that I might otherwise not have.

Re: Mystery Knob on Logan Lathe tailstock

Ahh... Very interesting. My LeBlond has the socket and I've wondered what it was for. I thought maybe it was for holding a light fixture or something. :D

Re: Shop smith 10er verital mill conversion

Reminds me of the number of people who attempt to use a common drill press as a milling machine. Can't deny that they achieve some level of success, but I know of no one who is happy with the results. Again, a lack of proper design and rigidity assure they won't be. BTDT.

Re: Vintage Machine Shop Photos

Our Historical Museum, located in Cincinnati Union Terminal, has a small machine shop setup. They have a lathe, a planer and a mill (IIRC...) set up and operational, using overhead belt drive. They have a few machinists that occasionally do demonstrations. And, last time I was there, they had a coup...

I wonder what happened to them all...
