Is your surface grinder too small for that giant part?

Is your big ol’ surface plate SLIGHTLY clapped out? Say no more! We have a SLIGHTLY crazy solution. While making the world’s beefiest CNC Router, I was unable to grind the gantry beam (a.k.a. 1929 South Bend Lathe Bed). “But Ed, why don’t you have it professionally ground?” BECAUSE…we’re doing it the janky way (it’s way more fun). Plus, we have a trick to measure the angle of any tapered bore that we’re excited to share!
