Hi all, I have not had time to write here for a while, much to do in school and than the western new years holiday.

I got myself a small treat for the spring… An old Swedish Stenberg KET combination machine. It takes most of my workshop.
Its a fully working about 50+ years old cast iron beast. No rust, 100’s of bits, blades and cutters, perfect for a small production workshop. It as been in production use until three days ago when we took it apart for transport. It has Jointer and a Planer at 600mm wide, a Moulder (I think is the English name), a saw for 400 mm blades and a mortise drill? (We call it Long hole drill in Sweden)

As a treat for the walls, I also got a couple of Square milling cutters, and lots of hand cut profiles. These are so dangerous that they have been banned from use in Sweden since 70’s (if I’m not mistaken).
