      Rick,

      Don't let TM get you worked up. As I recall he uses the same brand machine as our buddy Steve so consider the frame of reference. We both have our choice of any machine we want and we prefer sectionals. That does not mean everyone will. As there appears to be some cage rattling going on here I would suggest everyone be careful.

        mark, your correct. but what bothers me is he talks about a machine he doesn't own and doesn't use as if he's an expert and expects others to listen to him.

        next he's going to convert people to a marco machine. which i've owned for a weekend and then gave it to steve for his collection. and i've used them with steves guys, before i took the k-60 out of the truck to clear the line.

        but when he needs real jaws to make that auto feed work, he won't be going to marco to get them as they're discontinued, he'll be begging me to get him a set from the other steve and craig

          I actually owned Marcos for a while as well but I don't know what happened to them. Because they are just down the street from me I thought I would try them out. In around the mid 70s I bought a few of them and after a week or so they were retired as back up machines. They were still never used as back up machines and then they disappeared. I'm guessing I gave them to one of my guys who was going out on his own. Recently I came across a Marco hand spinner from the same purchase which was still brand new. It actually looks really will built so I may keep it..

              Rick, do yourself a favor and put TheMaster on ignore. It has helped me a lot not having to deal with his rantings of him always thinking he is right and better than anyone else.

                  That there is a Spartan Model 600, the cable passes through the handle of the drill and out the check. The Drill can be removed from the frame so you can have the power of the motor right at the access point. It takes a bit of coordination to use it, but once you get the hang of it, it goes real easy. I was told that this unit was very popular on the east coast.

                            i would think the all metal drill with water and no gfi is a no no now

                            hopefully a gfi and rubber gloves are used.
