I happen to know for a fact that Will didn’t really get shocked other than it being an obvious good joke. I’ve gotten electrocuted by 110V and you can’t really immediately free yourself, you kind of freeze up for a good five seconds just shaking lol. I did it on a part which I didn’t think had any current going through it, and I swear I sat there with my arm shaking for a good ten seconds before I realized it was electricity doing it.

Guys, Just flip that tank plate over. It'll still pivot to let you roll the tank on, just at a slightly higher slope!

"Big" drill presses? I've got three of those Delta in the step-pulley version, two floor and one bench. All of them had the same wiring issue yours did, it's simply age...
The big drill press has to be moved with a forklift - Clausing 22V 20" with Reeves variable speed control (think it's the same as your VS (make sure to run the speeds every time you use it) and mechanical power downfeed.
PS - stick with aluminium; you're British, the American pronunciation sounds odd...

You can remake that bottom plate for the tank and have the angle that attaches to the frame on the outside instead of the inside. That might give you enough room to roll the tank in.

I was going to mention the shim at the end of the measuring tape, but figured you knew already.
So, since you didn't know, I'll also mention that letting it snap back can loosen the shim by causing the rivets to tear into the tape, throwing your measurements off even more in the future. Next time I notice something I'll mention it right away. My bad, Alec!

You guys didn't know how the hook on a tape works! Dude...dude...dude. Now you need to make a jig that allows you to test your push/pull measurement per tape. Every woodshop has one (usually tests at the 12" mark, at the primary edge not the leading one). Gotta standardize your metrology! LOL! keep up the good work! Rock on!

Hi. congrats on two good machines. It seems as you are doing well. But at 2 min 35 one can see at the left in the image, an extension cord on a selfwinding drum. Be careful, using such equiepment, as the cable get hot on the drum when electric loaded, and can possibly melt the cable, or worse, catch fire.

So tape measures, I knew that. Also, because of the flexibility of that tip it's important to not let the tape retract all the way in. Stop it just before the tip hits home so as to keep that tip from breaking off.
