Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!

If you'd like to have the Chaski board host your picture, all you need do is click the Browse button, found below the box in which you compose your post. The blue line above the Browse button says Upload Attachment, assuming you are using subsilver as your board choice.

When you click the Browse button, the software will then allow you to go to your stored pictures. Click on the one you choose to post, than click Add the file. Done. You can add more pictures by clicking the Browse button once again. Take note that you can assign the pictures to display in the order of your choosing, or you can even place them within text.

If you prefer that pictures be hosted off the Chaski site, please insure that they display no larger than 800 pixels in width, to avoid spreading text off the screen. Size is not a consideration if you post only the link, so pictures do not run automatically.

Thanks, missed the 'upload attachment' below the reply. Here's a photo of my Colchester 13 x 36. The extra turret tailstock is still on at time of photo and since removed and stored. Have the high speed tap attachment (not tried yet), three steady rests. No taper attachment, so advise on where to buy or how to make would be appreciated.

There are several recent previous threads on installing tapering attachments. Most recently, several persons have obtained new Jet units, old stock, for prices around $200. They appear to be very good quality. I installed one on a Harrison 600 AA, including making a telescoping crossfeed screw.

Here is my Harrison 600 AA, which replaced a Sheldon 13 x 36. This is a low hours unit from a lab and is well equipped.

A small bench lathe, one I've recently set up again in my basement shop (it was languishing in a crate for quite some
time) with a VFD drive. Lots of fun to run:

Seven inch swing pratt and whitney bench lathe, it takes 3C collets right in the spindle. The toolmaker's
compound, that's not by P&W, though.
