Hi Forum

My name is Maurice, I live in South Africa. 62 years old and retired.

Building up my workshop presently, I have presently a large modern verticle mill,a die filer recently which I am getting operational shortly and early next year or earlier a lathe.

My interests are varied in metalwork and electronics.At the moment no specific projects but building up the machinery. I have recently also built up a rocket stove which worked out very well.smiley

Regards Maurice

Welcome to the Forum.

Sounds like you have a few projects to keep you busy for a while before starting to make whatever takes your fancy as a model.

Lots of helpful advice, and banter, available on here.

Many thanks

For all the welcomes, I am still getting use to using the message board.

Today I finsihed getting my OPUS 19" die filer ready and after testing all went well and the machine is in working order.

This has been an interesting project because i suspect that it is a very early model and there is no imformation available.

It is probably simerlar in size to the OPUS140 model but has an imperial designation.

I will get some measurements and photo's and upload in album section

Best Regards
