Nice shot of the happy family Marty.  Excellent results for the time invested.  I certainly look forward to the rest of the machinery group and the housing for it all.

Cheers,
Dan

Marty, there are not any superlatives left for me to use!  if you were to have Photoshopped that lathe into a machine shop it would be nigh on impossible to tell it was not full size.

Beautiful craftsmanship.

Thanks Everyone!

Michael,
The plan is to build the machine shop then take pictures and fool everyone!
No photoshop needed! (hopefully!)
Thanks!

Marty, I don't know what these guys are raving about. I think the lathe turned out really badly. Maybe you should just give it to me to ridicule and build a new one .... -- ssuR

Russ,
You can have it to copy only if you make one four
times as big(like I did) and completely out of paper!
Let me know.
