Forges DeGuilly....Horizontal Boring Machine
« on: July 22, 2022, 12:21:36 PM »
Well, seven years later.....and some effort to un-bury the machine from 'storage table' duty, the FDG is powered up and running. Incentive job was drilling and tapping the end of the crankshaft on a Wis-con V4.....
Heidenhain DRO install is next.....not sure when.....but next. Along with some other general maintenance and adjustments.

Machinist, fabricator, designer, daydreamer.... mostly.

Wow, that's a nice bit of iron! Looks like a fair whack of travel in all directions. That'd come in handy!
