Hi Ryan,

I have joined hsbne again after being away for a few year
I have been over the yag with Eris the other day and have a plan for making the shield I will be making a pattern for the vacuum former which I looked at the other day so we can form a few as they will get damaged.

If no one has bought the motor for the lathe yet I might have one sitting around and also have some vfd’s. Just a thought if we already have a manual lathe I do have enough spare parts to convert one of them into a CNC lathe.

I repair and build cnc’s and have spare parts all the time I went over hildi tonight, she seemed to run fine on Linux cnc. ( coolant pump needs looking at I think the screen may be blocked but will go over it today) my understanding is hildi has just been converted to the new controller?

Look forward to talking more about what I can assist with as I will be in Brisbane a fair bit again.

Thanks Nick
