Thanks for the offer Bob but yes, I was referring to the videos, keen to see them so I can approach the repair of my dodgy indicators with some confidence. I bought a pile of indicators from a deceased estate a few years ago and only one was usable, I dismantled and cleaned a few with mixed results. Once I've seen the master at work I will attack a few more. Sending them around the world would probably cost way more than I paid for them.
Anyway sorry for the off-topic; your mill is terrific and I'm keen to see some video of it in action too.
