PM Research Mini Engine Lathe Build

Decided to test out my tap guide. Some of the small gears need set screws. It's one of the reasons I needed a tap guide. The tap is a 1-72. Everything worked great.

Worked on getting the feet done. Took a bit of file work on the rough castings, then the bed was drilled and tapped for 1-72 screws. I dusted off top of the legs at a 3* angle. I cut some 1/4 ply parallels for that. Also dusted the feet flat one it was together. So far so good.
