07:52 pm - Fabio rocks!
I stand corrected. :)

Fabio is actually perfect. I was trying to read his calibration on the wrong side of him- the ZERO mark is on the output side, not the imput one.

I clearly do need to sopend some time learning to read the measurements, and making notes of how to adapt them to what I do. But Fabio himself needs no adjustment (except maybe for the ingot-rolling-out parts).

I've done some cleaning up on him- tools like this generally come bathed in lots of grease, which needs to be removed. I do need to do more.

And- I have a new wedding ring commission, and I am hoping I can use Fabio for the final smoothing of the forged stock, and get it really precise: so I need to clean him off, AND learn better how to read his settings.
