More than fifty years ago I had one third of a Myford Super 7. It is still in custody of a friend that is chairman in Society against cruelty to Myfords. I made him a pair of tangential carbide holders and he uses next to nothing else today. Many years later i got a Boxford and improved it immensely (I think) by supporting bed on a piece of granite and making a sensible driving system. I gave it to my son but after some time I missed the feel of swarf in bed and bought a Boxford AUD very late model. It was a lousy and I scrapped it with relief.Parts were also getting to heavy for handling single-handed in my living room.
