Picked this up today, from a medical device manufacturing place. Come out of their engineering department. Ran aluminum prototypes, to the tune of less than 1,000 hours.


Sounds almost to good to be true.. My old south bend book talks about lathes that are in good shape, referring to them as only used by "a little old lady who only used it to machine plastic I Sundays". Nice buy man

Surprisingly good machines coming out of places like that recently. Engineering whines (as engineers always do) about wanting to manufacture on site. Company buys machines, finds it's cheaper to send work out than pay a guy $100K a year that can program, set up, and run a machine.

Dude... that green thing that's my avatar?  Mudguard is plastic, tank and seat are fibreglass. 
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.  Trust me on this.

A lot of people comment
that they don't like what they see
I tell them to go f*** themselves
because this bike's for ME.

Picked up a rad old fiber glass rd400 tank and a Honda replica seat for the road racer project. Tank may not be street legal, but it only weighs a couple pounds, so the trade of is worth it ;)

Got this Tool Box for $120. Needed something to keep all my mill tooling in, it was starting to pile up on my work benches and because I couldn't ever find the tooling I was looking for it was slowing me down. This toolbox has been a huge improvement. I purchased it a bit as petty revenge. I went into harbor freight to pickup one of those red rolling tool carts, I think they are $60 or $70. I took a slip to the register, the woman called a guy to bring the last one they had up to the register from the back, when he got up there a lady in line behind me thanked the guy and  took the tool cart. I was royally pissed, I was standing at the register, and the girl at the register just shrugged her shoulders. So I went online and found this US General box, which is the same one Harbor Freight sells, but it was $40 cheaper than they sell them for. 

Sav0r the adventure.
