Hi Kevin,

Looks like your pictures are too big and that is what's causing the problem. Try re-sizing to, say, 800 x 600 max and try again.

Regards

Hi, the first thing i did with my Boxford after using a Myford for 40 years was to put the carriage handle on the "proper" side !! I found the B configuration quite difficult to use..........just sayin         good luck with it and i also used 1 1/2" whit worth nuts when i needed a quick backplate...

That's a neat idea steam guy. Why do they put the hand wheel at the front were the hot chips drop? I ended up putting a handle on the tail stock end of the lead screw on my sphere atlas 10f clone because I got fed up with burning the back of my hand.

Hi Kevin,

I don't know if you have the drawings for your Boxford. Always handy to have if not.

In each section there is a diagram which is 'clickable' to make larger should you need them.
