    My legendary psychic powers could be waning........ Normally can hear a mere whisper 'DeVlieg' far away. Anyone reading the lathes.UK link will understand.
    Spoiler alert. It's epic.

    BTW Frank S; a small handful of those have potential for that idea; with proper support, given a place to start. They range in size, per Jack H's picture, proper clearance, micro adjustable. Wouldn't say available everywhere, but not impossible either. DeVlieg lives on in Bourn & Koch, seems some outfits make them too.
