Small job for someone with a lathe & milling machine...

Post by Variant » Wed Jan 16, 2013 9:27 am

Greetings,

I am looking for someone who knows how to work a metal lathe and milling machine to make me a couple of dial gauge holders. I have the original drawings from VW as a guide but i am sure that the actual tool can be simplified quite a bit and still be satisfactory.

Regards,


Adriaan
