Hello

David, I think your saw looks similar in size to the saw I looked at (the $650 one) although that one looks  better made

It's an Italian product ; Mine is from ~ year 2000 ... model 105 (weight 17 kg) = actual 780XL.

This product still exist: 105, 120 and 150mm (Ø maxi for a round stock) with manual or automatic feed.

Another small update.
I have finally settled on a design for the Base Plates, and have cut and shaped the plates to size.
I have decided to standardise the CB turret files by including the stl of the part in every file.
I had to make a vice stop and orientate the vice along the milling table to get the Y Axis clearance.
I used a 16 mm endmill for the end features, which went well and saved a lot of time.

I also ran a air line to the mill and made a mounting for it and pointed it at the endmill, this worked better than I expected in removing the chips from the slots, even at the deepest part of the cut. The only annoyance was that the compressor cycled quite a bit (every 4 or 5 minutes) which seems a prodigious waste of energy.

I'm thinking that there must be a better way, perhaps a small 24 volt motor connected to a bellows style pump.
