You suck, bigtime.
What's that pedestal thingy just back and to the right of the, (WHAT? A spare tire?) tire?

No idea as of yet. They claim it runs well, but they are modernizing to subspindle CNC so much of their second op stuff is becoming surplus...which btw....I will be brokering...
Not bad shape though for such an old pile of parts eh?

That was going to be my question when you sent us to your site with lebenty seben pics on it. OK, top left group, first pic, with your full trailer, which you had mentioned last week. Wasn't that THE pic you referred to in the vague post? ;)
Well, you've put up another batch since yesterday morning. It's the Walker Turner trailer pic.

That's the older version than mine. In fact it's the model before mine. That's a VHF-2B though it does look like it might have the 40 taper spindle instead of the #4 Morse (you might check that).
It does look like it's been taken care of. Nice catch.

Definite plus there.
Well it wouldn't be the end of the world. It's just a piece of steel with two holes. Definitely possible to make it. The tapered adjustable bushing for the arbor would be tricky but there's other ways around that.

you will find that Rolf Nielssen at Abene (in switzerland) is very helpful when you are ready to get a manual, etc "

Don't feel alone, William. Our esteemed president made the same mistake a few years ago.

Shipping would kill me. Besides, the way Michigan is going down the tubes, I just need to keep my eyes out for semi local stuff.
Sure hope I never have to post a, "Best way to move my shop" question.

The difference was that Bush didn't realize he had made a mistake.

I think Bush read _All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten_, and took it to heart.
