MegaST to be restored

Post by Anzac » Fri Sep 01, 2017 4:48 pm

This is a long term project, but just wanted to share the machine status and revisions. maybe this one will be good only for display and collection purposes or to remove parts.

"to be restored".. so it doesn't work ?
Can you describe what it does ? (or doesn't do :) ).

never tried to run it. considering the amount of dirt and corrosion, i wouldn´t feel safe in doing it before checking critical parts.

Corrosion is indeed a potential issue.
