Hello all,

My name is Mark and I live in Switzerland, fairly recently retired and getting into metalwork etc.

I have a Sieg Sc3 purchased from Paulimot in Germany, they seem to be a good company to buy from, my milling is taken care of by a Proxxon BFB 40/e although I am on the lookout for something a bit bigger, a SX2 from ARC is currently the favorite, hopefully they will get some in stock soon! I also have a pillar drill from Proxxon and several woodworking tools.

Projects for the future will include a first timer oscillating engine, just ot get started then who knows!

I am sure that I will have lots of questions so thanks in advance,

stay healthy, best wishes, Mark

G'day Mark and welcome from Australia. This site has the whole planet covered

Amazing what can achieve with such basic kit as a well fettled C3 mini-lathe and an X2/3 mill

Thanks all for the welcome!

BTW I live near to Lausanne in Switzerland so only about 2-3 hours from Zurich. Greetings to Danny in Oz! I guess model engineering unites a whole bunch of people

With regards to Sieg equipment it seems strange that the very first few projects are all aimed at making the lathe work well, glad we do not have to do the same with our cars! Lathe seems to work OK once the bugs are adjusted out, let us see for the mill.

Still must turn out the lights soon, too much time spent in the workshop, according to my long suffering wife

stay healthy, Mark
