Again, thanks for the kind words.
BTW: Just (less than an hour ago) bought my CNC mill for action work. Working on another one right now for stocks.
Got my Brown/Sharp surface grinder on the way and my Wilson hardness tester and Mitutoyo Optical Comparator and metrology software package.
Hasn't been a good day for the savings account and visa card!
Hopefully by this winter or later in the spring I'll be set up and running under my own name.
