08-01-2006 - Here it is, on the floor: The Sieg X3. I want it on my workbench, but in total it weights a whooping 160 kg. The idea is to lift it...

08-01-2006 - In position on the bench. The old drill on the left. The head on the mill can still be lifted for about 10 cm, so it's even more impressive than you'd say from looking at the photo..

08-01-2006 - Also bought 'this'. Don't know the English name for it, but you could call it a turntable. This thing is old, but in better than perfect condition. No play to be detected anywhere!
