    Looks great. Love the added touch of the climber brace. So many man hours in the machine shop but the end results are amazing.

    OK, that table is just plain genious. You've created some things I've seen nowhere else.

    What a versatile rig you've built!

    Yes it does, but that`s more of a bonus than planned.

    So i checked the ac to find the leak and ordered parts:



    Adjusted the lights:



    Those hid spots are almost too bright:



    Then i did an oil change:



    Cut some threads for the table mount lock:



    Looked for some nice handles in my castings bin:



    Changed chucks:



    Machined the castings:





    Put in some brass stock so the locking bolts don`t mar up the bushing surface:



    Finished:



    Added a gusset and apart from paint it`s done:

    Thanks.

    So the ac wasn`t good, it was empty again after a few days. To be precise the day before we planned to start holidays.

    Here`s the problem:



    The dealership couln`t get a new one in time so i tried to weld it. Worked perfect:



    Was fine this time:



    And off for holidays:
