    Quick pic of this weekends efforts. Havenít done any conduit work for some years - it is still a very pleasing job - used to do heaps of screwed metal conduit back in the day which I also enjoyed doing. Sub board is complete minus a 3 phase RCD/MCB combo Iím waiting on, which is the gap you can see behind the cover - only have a standard breaker in there at the moment.

    The heavy metal is multiplying. This little tacker (bloody heavy little tacker - almost broke my engine crane) made its way into my garage this arvo. Still have to clean and assemble it back on its base. Has 3 axis DRO plus seperate quill DRO, and some other bits and pieces. 👍

    That really is a neat job & my former Sparky who was the best in Adelaide before his illness, would agree.

    And now he is buggered for life after picking up a "Virus" of some sort in Hong Kong on a Retailer Sponsored trip which nearly killed him. Can't work, can't drive but he would really appreciate that effort Gav..

    Thats pretty much the same as mine , rebranded chinese clone, but I added my DRO ,
    you are going to need a clamp kit , a rotary table and a boring head to start you off.

    Amazing the things you will be able to make.

    I buy these enclosures for $35 , quick touch with the milling machine & they go for $500ish .

    oh I also include some electronics .

    I still have quite a bit of tooling to buy - decent boring head included as well as a decent vice. It came with a clamp kit a couple of small vices and rotary table, so happy with that as a start. Hopefully by the time I get it set up, Iíll have a few extras for it.

    Mill is all back together and operational. Everything works as it should. Will be able to do the first job on it when the boring head Iíve ordered arrives. 👍

    Hmmm, not sure why the pic is that way sorry.

    Open the picture on the computer, rotate right, rotate left then save. Should be OK when you attach it after that......
