Where did this come from?


#1

this is uber-cool. It just showed up last week. we talked about getting one before. This is well made so I don’t know if it is maker made or commercial.
who do we have to thank?
If you don’t know what it is - it eliminates cranking the bridgeport table up and down.


#2

That is a Walter Anderson donation. Need a wired electric drill, it kills batteries.


#3

good 'ol Walter. He will be with us a long time.
Thanks brother!


#4

I suggest we purchase a dedicated wired electric drill and mount it to the Bridgeport Mill, tie wrap that power cord down so that drill does not fly away.

I recall seeing an identical article in the machine shop some ~3 years ago.


#6

Think of the hours nick has spend cranking in these 3 years!

Neat tool, I’ll have to look at the front of it next time I’m around.


#7

It’s like how many cumulative hours have been spent in movies and television dialing rotary phones as a plot element?


#8

If by tie wrap, you mean a locked chain, I agree. :slight_smile:


#9

If you plan on using a 20 pound log chain, Nick may find it easier to just go back to cranking that handle again. Ha! Ha!
