Bruce, It's their Deckel clone. It comes with work heads and fixtures that expand the little grinder's functionality. It's not German craftsmanship, but I'm excited to encounter those "I can do that" moments that happen when you have the right equipment!Hi Pontiac428,
Bits look great. Which cutter/grinder did you pick up from Shars?
Great idea with the body filler and bedliner.Last couple of days i've been working on the little Lada, working on smaller jobs first of which was mounting the trunk lid and drilling, tapping and installing gas struts, i had to modify the mounting holes to accept the new style ball mounts, this left me with a empty workbench, so i got the dashboard on there to work on fixing it, i've had no luck in finding a new dashboard so i'm using body filler to fill the holes and plan to use bedliner to apply a textured coat over it. I may need to start more than one job at a time because the body filler seams to take long time to harden, probably because of the cold.

OMG! How could such a thing happen?!?!?!?... this left me with a empty workbench ...
Thank You Mike, unfortunately is worse than being owned by Ivan the Horrible, this is an ex government vehicle, bought at an surplus auction by a outlaw guy how did some of the repairs himself and others had done by an even worse body shop. That said i've had good experiences with ex government vehicles, my daily driver use to be in the president's motorcade as a support vehicle and its been cared for extensively, but unfortunately the department that had the little Lada didn't care that much for it.Coming along nicely. That poor thing must have been owned by Ivan the Horrible. Cheers, Mike
It always feels like a fresh start after a good cleaning and reorganizing.Today i spent solid 7 hours cleaning my machine shop, there was lots of garbage and scrap all over the place, also all the machines needed cleaning, and the tooling got reorganized, sure makes a difference, now i can move around and get to all my tooling.
