10-05-2019: Waycovers and solid toolpost on the Emco Super 11
I did a writeup on the two most important modifications that I did to the Emco (apart from the DRO): The waycovers and the solid tool post. This allows for very heavy cuts (2mm DOC while hardturning HSS toolsteel with a CBN insert.) but also for very fast and repeatable work in combination with the DRO.
