    As I have been working with machines all of my working life, I thought it was worth investing in something I was familiar with and as I know how annoying a weak machine can be, so I put my money into something with backbone. There is still compromises to be made but I am really happy with these so far. I made these two mounting brackets yesterday afternoon for the Submarine WTC. For me, a Digital Readout, (DRO) was a must for accuracy and speed.

    "I think most of us would be happy to be able to go to a shop to do our own parts but having one in your own back yard that's the cats meow."
    Agreed Rick. My 'Machine shop' is in the corner of my workshop/kitchenπŸ˜‰
    Dunno what scale Ian and Peter (Mouldbuilder) are building to but I build to anywhere between 720 to 35.
    Consequently my 'machine shop' is also 'scale size' 😁
    Nothing I can't lift with one hand!
    (Except perhaps the scroll saw in the cellar.)
    800kg!? Phew!!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Thanks Marky.
    Just think on Martin. I need the machines to get any hope of getting anywhere near what you do. You use hands an a keen eye, I use machines and a DRO.πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Very Very nice.
    And i thought i was doing well with an electric drill and an airbrush.
    I can only dream of such beauties.

    I wish you many years of happiness with them.


    Extremely jealous Martin555.

    Finally managed to get the machines working. I am really impressed with the Warco machines.The Milling Machine was a lot heavier than I thought. I bought some feet for it to help with the leveling. They were not totally successful as the machine was not really heavy enough to work properly and actually introduced a spongy wobble. I decided to make some metal spacers from Stainless. They work very well and the machine is really stable now.
    I am really pleased with the results and will do well as a temporary workshop until I up sticks and move to Hungary.
    I am now looking forward to carrying on with my Submarine WTC and the Dusseldorf.😊

    This is a Colchester Student Mark 1.5. (Mark 1 with Mark 2 Carriage) I battled to get it into the workshop was great fun but still preferred my Myford! Was built in the days of good British Engineering. Just give an example The Colchester weighs in at 800Kg a replacement hinese Lathe tips the scales at about 250Kgs. Colchesters were never bolted down due to their weight! Never had a problem with twistπŸ‘πŸ‘
