Re: Buying a used Morso F and underpinner

I would imagine that if you had to move it as one piece then it would be a very heavy and awkward thing to move, even with two people moving it, thank heavens for these engineers that know how to strip down and reassemble machinery. :clap:

Re: Mount board

Hi Mark
