    Glad it's a little picture! Even happier that it's not me lifting the steady :whistle:

    You won’t be happy till you’ve got a lathe that needs stairs to get onto the cross slide

    The contract that requires one and pays enough to buy and house one would be my idea of success until I take 5thou too much on a £200k forging :D:o

    Is that a lathe dog fitted in place of the finger adjuster?

    We’ve got one similar at our workshop, used to get used regularly but I can’t remember the last it was worked. 60t lp turbine rotor was the last thing being machined on it...
