Any one familiar with this setup?
Looks like it's built by the plans from Vic Zannis.
Frank is correct ...that is built from the Zannis plans...looks like there are several extra boring bars also...i have never used one of these units , but have sold several of my design to people who have built ( or attempted to build) this unit ...i can email my procedure sheets that may offer some info. regarding tool setting procedure ...always an optimist...gene french
