      Thank you very much Darwin
      I'll take you up on this for the thread follower as
      soon as I can give it a good test. The Versa-mil is a
      big subject that needs it's own post.

        Pat I don't have sketchup but I do have Autocad 2002 and could turn the drawings into DXF or many other formats.
        If you would like to fax chicken scratch to me I would be glad to draw them up o get this book finished. let me know
        and we can arrange for my phone # to you I don't want to post it to the web.

        I think Sketchup is great for the MultiMachine group. "Dimensions" are
        are difficult for me to use but since a MM can be 150 pounds or 100
        times that size, no set dimensions are really appropriate. My problem
        is this, I am 71 and have been putting off a biopsy until I finished
        the "How to Build" book. In the last month or so since the book was
        finished? I have really gotten into building a "thread follower"
        threading device (Jeff's sketches 2 in "photos") and want to finish it
        by Dec 11, the day I go back to the Dr. Not only will the device make
        the MM complete, it will also solve a problem that people have been
        working on for 250 years, an easy way to cut threads without using
        change gears.
        If someone would volunteer to convert my chicken scratch into
        Sketchup, I would be very greatful.
