Went to a high school machine shop auction and scored a new ( to me ) surface plate with cast iron base on wheels. It was sad to see a school eliminating the metal arts from their curriculum, they told me that they did not have a single kid sign up for metal shop in a couple of years. C'mon you little bastards this is Detroit, this is what your grandfather did, your great grandfather and possibly your great grandma during WWII. I guess the kids these days are to pretty and don't want to get their touch screen phones dirty. Sad .
I was happy to take the table though.
