... because I wrongly understood some of the instructions  :Doh:

Where they written in Chinglish  :LittleDevil:   .... besides, I think that we all have read instructions that 'changed meaning to us', with time and experience with the item it should help one to understand - I know for a fact that the constructor usually don't write the best instructions (been there and done that) :ShakeHead:

Nice to see that you are still making progress with your new friend. I hope you're doing well too  :cheers:

Yes  ::)

Swarf sign  :whoohoo: Swarf sign  :whoohoo:


Just that first couple of sweeps with the Levers has taught me so much:

1, you must set the stops  (they are still very stiff to move hence the graunched knurls on them so I didn't use them ::))

2, You must use the stops - otherwise the tool moves away from the work as you sweep down the piece and you end up with a taper  :facepalm:

2a, You might be in a rush but don't forget to set the height of the tool  :stickpoke:

3, This will be really good for free hand sculpture :naughty:

More work to do... I need to replace both of the threaded knurled stops and add some of the intermediate nuts and think about putting increments on them.
