Hot Damn!! Cletus builds a die filer.
As for files, I got some from Gary, some at the CF auction and have ground the end of a few "regular" ones. Chainsaw files, of course.
As far as powering it: seems you have a Ľ horse horizontal lying around somewhere. That'll do her.

I agree Stan, 1/4 hp should do the trick.  I believe my old Oliver is 1/4 hp, but of course, that was when men were men etc. :naughty:

Jim,
You are very brave mentioning "wine and pate" to Cletus.  I'm sure he had to Google those to find out what you were talking about :lolb:

Without the proper diacritical marks...

pâté

it's just the top of the head.

When I worked in France, I had a colleague tell me that he admired my attempts to speak French but said I needed to work on my pronunciation.  I told him that I could never speak French properly because my German ancestry made it impossible for me to pronounce apostrophes.

Sorry about that Marv, have a lie down and you will soon recover. I assume that you have no problem pronouncing umlauts. We are not terribly elegant here, just a bit pretentious.

AHHHH, the smell of cast iron in the shower. Pouring rain here today, so, I spent me some shed time. I started with the table, don't know why, just did. I originally set it up as shown in the next pic, and then found that due to a misplaced DRO reader head and me mill being a bit small, I had to turn things around and come up with a different plan.



After turning things around, it was simple matter of indicating each side square and cutting to dimension.





After the mounting lug and all sides had been squared I flipped it over and put the cheap face mill that came with the mill from Grizzly, and faced off the top of the table.



And the finish turned out good enough that a little character building on some 320 grit should do the trick.



Not a lot, but, a start. Y'all come back to see us now you hear.

Well that looks like a fine start to me Cletus, and that face mill did a decent job too!!
