Re: Fly Tying Desk

This is great! It reminds me of a bigger version of my watch-modding station that I fit on my SS 510.

Re: Indexing Head

Hi,

My view on this was that I would be happy with relatively few stops in an Indexing device.
Here was what I did:

Nice ones!

The heron around here looks so 'regal' compared to the more numerous geese.

Re: old Mark 5 needs tuneup--Indianapolis

Hi, About 10 years ago I rebuilt several Shopsmith headstocks, but then I moved on to different activity. There are probably rebuilders on eBay and at the Shopsmith headquarters who can do great rebuild/maintenance work for fair charges. If you're not so much after the headstock rebuild (new bearing...

However in my case, the subject watch-case was designed for a thicker movement than the one I wanted to use. Reading up a bit, I'd seen th...
