More progress on the whatya-ma-call-it

Quite a few hours machining have gone int these two blocks of cast iron.  These are the main "frames" of the machine.  Lots of cutting out on the bandsaw and cleaning up using the milling machine:
The machine is officially called a "Bonelle" Tool and Cutter Grinder. Designed by James Willis in the late 1990's after an original design - The "Quorn" Tool and Cutter Grinder designed by Professor Dennis Chaddock in the early 1980's.  The original "Quorn" being made from castings and the "Bonelle" being made from stock sections of steel and iron (along with quite a few modifications as well).
