I have just acquired a March Mk 2 T&C grinder. Nice machine but with
some frustrating design features.
I would like to fit a lock to give positive location to the rotation of
the table. Should be fairly straightforward to drill and fit a plunger,
but before I cut metal, has anyone had a go at doing the same thing? If
so, any comments or suggestions would be welcome.
Also, does anyone know of a source for a small universal vice similar to
the one they used to do as an optional extra? The usual universal vices
I can find in catalogues have a different configuration (with two
vertical axes and one horizontal, as opposed to one vertical axis and
two horizontal) which makes it much more difficult to get tools
presented to the wheel with side rake.
