Re: Jennings Governor... Price?

Thought provoking BadPenny. I always thought the castings were aluminium but several posts refer it to being mazak. I am not worldly wise in such matters but your adventures in chroming seem to be similar to many others. I had no idea of your previous experience with BR. I did have the name of the c...

Re: Jennings Governor... Price?

As Mazak is such a problem to rechrome, has anyone made any ‘new’ castings for Jennings machines or would that be too costly? I’m sure I saw copies were made a few years back. 🤔
