  2. We  have 16,000 members!  We are growing, and growing! 

       

    We started, in September, 2010, with 1 member! All he wanted was to learn about the hobby of machining, and get some help without being laughed at and picked on. Over the years, more and more people decided that they wanted the exact same thing. They wanted to learn and have fun, in a patient, non-elitist environment that welcomes everyone, no matter how much experience they have, or don't have, and no matter what brand of machinery they own. 

    Is that for you?  Click here to join us today!

    Very funky looking little machine. I like it! :thumbzup: Tell me though, how is that "arm" with what looks like a dead center on the end of it used?

    That's correct- the cutterhead swivels and can be positioned in an arc, either vertical or horizontal.

    Have your boss check out the photos of mine and a couple of other guys on here wrt breaking them down to the base/column/etc. Just do a search for van norman and you will get some hits on it.
