The address is:This is a nvery nice group and a great bunch of guys and galls. Paula did the machining from raw casting. every bit of machining with lots of info. The castings came from:http://www.statecollegecentral.com/metallathe/S-4382.html These folks are super people to dealwith they have been around for a while.Hope this was helpful. What you are asking for, you will not find it unless someone like Paula wanting it on his machine. By the way the Practical Machinist group is one of them that you can loose hours surfing and reading.Good luck and best wishesNelson Collar

Subject: [southbend10k] home page photo inquiry
Is the home page photo showing an upside down parting operation with a rear tool post?
Other than see brief note on this kind of parting while reading a machine forum I don't recall doing it or learning of such back in the day. I would enjoy reading more about the details, motivations, advantages, disadvantages and etc.
Did I miss a link to an article, photos or discussion?
