  • Drill press and accident

    This is the DP I was doing when I had my accident resulting in losing two fingers plus.
    the shaft was still on my metal lathe since the accident, took it off this morning and put back the DP together, I just had to complete this one.
    Merci

    Looks great Jacques, pity it came at such a cost.

      Nice! Looks like flat belt drive off a line shaft. Do you have all your restored beauties in operation or are they part of your static museum?

          Great work Jacques! You've taken a reminder of an awful day and turned it into something special.

            Wow.
            Absolutely stunning Jacques.
            But your cost was too great.
            I understand why you wanted to finish.

              They are all in working condition but most of them are static display.
