    I scored the machine in the above video today. It was built by Mark Sternberg. He has been building wood machines for over 8 years. He sold me his "proto-type" to make room for his next build.

    He did tell me he is working on plans of the machine , and hopes to have them for sale within the next 6 months.

    As you can see in the video it is multi function. Pin router, Router table with lift, and more. I can attest it is rigid, and square. While I have not put the wood to it, I feel sure as long as you don't get over agressive with the passes, it will do a fine job.

    I plan on using it to rough out necks. I got the neck profile bits from sej-tools.

    Please note I have no financial interest in Marks, buisness Router Mill Works, or SEJ tool. Just posting this for those that mabe interested.

    It's still in the bed of my truck. I had gallblader surgery about 3 weeks ago and Doc says no heavy lifting. for about 4 more weeks. Kinda over did it yesterday just driving (6 hrs round trip) and tying it down. Mark, the guy I got it from is a great guy. He and his son loaded if for me.

    I'm hoping my son and grandson will come take pitty on me tomorrow, and unload it into the shop.

    I'll post some vid- to quote Rocky Racoon" as soon as I am able"

    Thanks,

    Jim

    That 'no heavy lifting' thung can get odd. When I asked my doc what heavy was, he asked what I thought heavy was. I said body weight. He said I could pour a full gallon of milk.

    Do you happen to have a way of contacting Mark Sterberg that you can share, please? I tried several times via his Router Mill Works website (I'm interested in buying his router mill) and also through his YouTube channel, but I never got a response. Thanks in advance.
