A substantial improvement! The problem now is that anybody who sees the finished model will assume the kit was of higher quality than it actually is. Better affix a warning label.

Once again I want to compliment your metal work. You and Bernard appear to be our Resident Brass Specialists, at least with regard to brass locomotive fabrication, and it is a pleasure to follow your progress.

I looked at that for a second .. then realized what I was seeing. You have a 3-jaw chuck .. chucked .. in a 4-jaw chuck. Is there a shaft on the back of the 3-Jaw? Curious.

Thanks guys!
It has been a challenge - which makes it fun when it works!

Unc I dont think I am on the same planet as Bernard, but thank you for the compliment.

etraxx, No the three jaw is not in a 4 jaw. It is mounted in the rotary table. There is a threaded adapter which allows this. The re is a plate at the base of the rotary table fixing it 90 degrees to the table/mill head.
