Glad you like it. The two machines are done. Left to do is a rack that stands beside the honing machine. It holds the cap & rod end grinder as well as an assortment of hones, go/no go gauges etc.

The latest machine is completed and in service in the shop. As always, I see in the photos a few things that will require touch ups but that is pretty well the way it'll sit.
