Hi Guido.

That's nice...let's have some pictures, please.
And the price and story of purchasing them.
There is always a story - please brag.

Cheers
Erik

Guido can you tell me if the fp1 and fp2 share the same horizontal mlling over arm support? Same arbor size?

I don't think so, the FP2 is a lot bigger machine physically. If the FP1 is a later model, they usually came with a CAT40 spindle, which is what a FP2 has.

Ok thank you. That helps. Could you tell me how long the over arm is on the fp1?

Thank you. Don't need high precision. The support I am looking at is something like 28-30" long judging from photos.

Another question I have concerns the handles. They are corroded on my machine. The wheels could be mounted in the lathe and brought back to a nice shine with some emery cloth or a fine file but there doesn't seem to be a way to get the handle off. It is a nice big handle that rotates but I can't figure out how it is held it place. It almost seems like magic. Anybody know how to get one of those handles off the wheel to clean it up? Is there something force fit?

Hey Guido I figured out that the overarm for sale locally is for a bigger machine. I found an FP1 overarm on the German ebay site and it had a ruler beside it. So no need to measure yours, but thank you.
