Another thing I didn't understand is the engraving issue; for a fist timer engraving can be kept to a minimum but I don't want to do nothing so I guess I have to do some learning.
I have been looking into what the minimum engraving kit might look like to minimize the initial costs.
Thinking about making my own rotary vice I realized that I had the raw materials on hand to make a rotary table.
As for the bearing I new I had save a clutch throw-out bearing from maybe 40 years ago and located that.
Not a rotating vice but...
Not bad for a low cost TT.
