Just got this today, was about to go in the scrap pile. It does work and I managed to find a parts box with more attachments. Now need someone to teach me to use it.
It was sitting on a plywood table next to a 5 ton arbor press that I couldn't get! Does this supposed to have an oil reservoir to keep the work cool?Did you find the rest of table that goes with it? If not you can mount it on a table for sure! Metal lathe always come in handi!
It's the tools that's expensive!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^yes, cutting oil/fluid can work, but old school's guys used a mix of emulsifiable oil and water, distibuted with an oiler over the working steel blade
the most delicate point is the sharp blade of the tool_ you can buy the tools or build them yourself, sharpening them on the grinding wheel (an art in itself)
