I am a semi-retired industrial designer based in Leicestershire. I am lucky enough to have a dry, heated and well-equipped workshop on my own property. The sort projects I undertake are quite a bit different to what see I on here - more prototyping rather than modelmaking or model engineering. Just before lockdown I added a new Sieg SX2.7 mill to my workshop. The first project was to fit a DRO system - if any members are interested I'll perhaps post details (including pictures) of how I did it. I found it difficult to find instructions for this specific machine on this forum or elsewhere so I had to make it up as I went along but I am very pleased with the result. Watch this space as they say.

Welcome along Peter, I am no model maker but a motorcycle tinkerer. The 1920s/1930s stuff appeals to me. What sort of thing do you prototype ?

Welcome to the club, I'm not much of a modeller more a repairer - of almost anything. Sometimes very big, check out "wash monster" . If you have a question someone here will have an answer. Best wishes Noel.

I used to have a Sieg SX3 and fitted a DRO and did some other modifications (posts in the archives of MEW somewhere). I also joined a Yahoo user group to share information. Not sure if it still exists but metalworkforums.com have a Sieg group.
Also lots of good informationfor an SX2.7 on Youtube.

Welcome to the forum, Peter.
I have one of the first X2s to reach the UK. Somewhat modified but still going strong after about 18 years!
