    Re: Tennessee Deardorff Video

    I saw this in the terrible video. Doing things this way is probably an indicator of what went wrong with the whole operation. The Deardorff men were real craftsmen who prided themselves on their ability to machine mahogany to .001". They would never hand drill a hole like this.

    Re: Tennessee Deardorff Video

    I bought my 8x10 Deardorff brand new in the very early 80's and used it exclusively for nearly a decade. Nearing 70 years young now, I tend to use the Intrepid 8x10 Mk2 more, but I still very much enjoy schlepping the 'old Dorff out. It's the one camera I own that will be with me to the end!

    Kind of makes your stomach churn doesn't it? I do better with a bird house.

    There is an awesome "new" invention I am lucky to have in my shop called a milling machine, oh and a drill press too.
    Sad to see Deardorff's assembled using a Dremel or whatever that is.
