Once you fully understand how they work, Im able to move a fadal 4020 by pushing by hand. When it becomes to difficult to push by hand, you know that the skate...

    Help with oddball tooling / Old Lucas horizontal

    I agree, just not sure how it would mount on this HBM, or if that tooling just got mixed in with the auction lot (my assumption)..
