Welcome Ross,

How far along did you get with your slotting head?

Cheers chaps,

I havenít done anything with it since I got back.

I need to get a few jobs cleared up in the workshop before I start on the scrapping.

Then I need to assess my surface plates and sort a carbide grinder.

Lots to do!

Thanks for the replyís chaps.

As for projects, Iím currently in the process of rebulding a Bridgeport slotting head. Other than that I will probably work on some surface/angle plates to develope my skills then I may look at doing some work on my M300.
