    Kiwi Mk2 Engine

    Hello Vince, Nice work on your Kiwi Engine. :bow: When making the tread, did you move towards or away from the headstock? If you moved towards the headstock, how did you stop the lathe to not crash your tool in the hex bar? With 3mm pitch you have quite a feeding speed... Regards Jeroen

    Tacchella AU300 universal tool grinder

    Hi Vince, Thanks, it took quite a lot of sanding to get the machine as it is now. I will not use it for about 4 weeks, give the paint the rime to dry.
