I'm toying with the idea of building a small vertical borer...... I think a Boxford lathe like mine stood on end, with a new thrust bearing to take the load...... keep thingking....

Other than floor space theres nothing to be gained by having a small vertical borer other than the novalty factor...

we've 800mm Carnaghi, 48" W&B, 1900mm Schiess, 2440mm Berthiez :) :) :) :) :) :)

Ha! I forgot the Schiess, twin table jobbie, probably about the same size as yours :D

We make epicyclic gears, big ones, upto about 40T, fixed input/output ratio's, so turn lots of rings to cut teeth on.
