    Everything mentioned above is toxic. Wear rubber gloves and old clothes and wash afterwards. And as Art mentions, use outdoors. Ettore

    Long Distance Operator, That Judkins is looking seriously good. Going to cast it? Ettore

    I was not aware of the differences, which I see now. Having done a bit of resin casting and scratchbuilding, I am certain it would be less expensive and less work to convert the plastic kit. Ettore

    Not yet. My interest would only to be to model the cars in computer to mill the bodies, not do the "virtual models". I hang out at www.smcars.net. Thousands of plans there and many very good modelers (virtual modelers). I have a 19 year old German virtual modeler wiz interested in modeling some of the cars i would like to mill out and build.

    I'm on dialup connection now so too slow to upload images. Go to: www.rockcliffmachine.com for info and pictures. Also go to cnczone.com and register; then search for the rockcliff discussion thread. Plenty of info there. I have high hopes for this machine. and there are several others interested, too. I've spent too many days carving out masters and filling and recarving again and again. Ettore

    All parts cut, base and frame put together. I put Y table on frame but found that the Y table was wrapped because I used water based primer to prime it so that threw the parallelism of the rods off. Remade the Y table-oil based primer this time on the MDF -and am about to mount it again. Those rods have to be really parallel or they will bind. I epoxyed the oilite bearings in. Thought about a 4th axis to make 1/24th scale masters. Without a 4th axis to make a master, it would have to be a 2 piece master; not such a big problem but with a 4th axis, a bit easier. Ettore

    4th axis??? I've given that a bit of thought. Maybe we should talk. Will you be at the Southern Nationals this November in Atlanta? Ettore

    Very nice work. What kind of cnc router did you build? I'm now working on one from the rockcliff plans. Cutting volume 12" X 12" X 5' - plenty large enough for 1/24th scale. Ettore
