The Italian Screw Machine nears Completion

OK all you high tech rifle part makers with your fancy CNCs you're in trouble now

You been warned!!

If some one wants something bad enough here's what can happen.

Keep in mind a couple of things:
  • I'm dumber than a post
  • Lazier than a useless hound dog
  • Half a bubble off of plumb and a half step out of step
  • But by darn when I want something I'll jump thru some hoops to get it.
First here's my apartment living set up.

My nifty workbench


My really cool and sometimes wet Shop!

A couple of finished products
The shadows make them look different but they are "exactly" the same.

    Whew, Roy...........there for a second I thought maybe you had invented a self-satisfaction device of somekind! Those two tips you showed us had "woof" written all over them. I could see it!! 'Specially since the "woof rider" to the spending bill passed. Hurry home fella, it's time to manage!!!!!
