I bought a 3rd or 4th hand SS MkV 500 - serial is SS 9679, so i believe it is a 1988+, gave $300. Trailered it for 2.5 hours.
With the change of hands, i'm sure i'm missing things (like all the hand tools it came with, and a manual). But this forum has been exceptionally helpful due to its free sharing membership! Ya'll are awesome.
Currently i am going through the machine, runs smooth, but identifying parts, lubricating, learning the ins/outs of my new toy/tool. Finding lots of loose bolts (from the transport i believe) and trying to identify if anything is missing.
First thing i would love to do is improve on the table sizes (like a 500-520 upgrade), but 1700 is a bit much more than i can bear right now. So i'm researching ideas of DIY Mods for improving, as i have access to some ss & aluminum fabrication (not milling, but shop level).
However, while going through what i did recieve, i found something puzzling.... I have (2) two large tables, I have no idea whats-what.
Can ya'll help identify them for me? Also, what am i missing?
Three pics, 2 of the two different tables and 1 of the extras that came with it. Also included some pics of the unit i gave 300 for.
Scratch the above statement. how do i add pics??
