 Brian, it's one thing to build one but to  design one, build it and make it work is just so far above the norm it's unbelievable. Great workmanship and I admire your tenacity. Kudos my friend.

Don't sweat getting old, you'll still do dumb shit, just slower.

An Optimist will tell you the glass is half full, the pessimist half empty, the engineer will say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Hi  Jeff
It's a balance  beam it stops my mobile bench wriggling  around on it's rubber castors,  as soon as I feel the mill start to  tremble I give the nut a tweek  on large diameters just add another nut.  it definitely improves the finish and allows me to run at higher  RPM . Plus being kinder on the quill bearings.

Brian.

Latest job was to knock up a test rig to prove the corrected master rod was indeed correct ??
All cylinders came up spot on at 72 intervals. that's a relief.

Man I'll bet..... dialing it in, that will sure smooth things out.

Thumbs up
