Hello Marty,

simply unsurpassable.
If I had not followed the report with the birth, I could not believe it.
Now a workpiece in a vise on the machine table and it's just perfect.

Awesome! The steel rod is definitely an improvement.

What are you using to simulate the lubricant?

Simply Beautiful. (The "improvements" did make a difference; good catch).

@Marty
Just a great job! I always like to follow your fantastic work!
Not only the color finish is convinced!
Yesterday I showed my colleagues the picture of the finished machine.
His first words: "Great machine, which weighs 1 ton ... surely!"
He was amazed as he saw the hand in the picture below.

I was really impressed with version 1, but the improvements really take it to a whole new level.
You've got a great eye for making things look just right.

This is spot on, Marty. Great work! I'm always amazed how you turn your models into 'living' things.

Thank you all for the kind words.
But it is yourselves you should actually be thanking.
No way i could get away with a half-ass attempt here!
Even though the first finished was good, your nudges made me kick it up a notch.
The main reason I got into the modeling I do was to build it all myself (as much as possible).
The rewards have been great.
Again, Thank you for your honesty, I am humbled.

Marty,

I have followed along as you have built the machinery for your shop and they have all been great builds.
This one however, this one is exceptional!

Thank you for sharing this.

Marty, what did you use to create the oily sheen on the table? It looks exactly like oil.
