Default Some pics of my shop

Couple shots of my shop, figured I might as well share them here, I know I like seeing everyone else's shops.

My manual knee mill (I hate turning cranks)

Monarch lathe (72" between centers with a 20" max swing)

HE&M full auto bandsaw

Also have some CNC machines that I use for mostly production runs of parts, but I am here on a personal interest only, not looking for work.

I envy you guys with equipment like that, I have a nice shop but most of my tools are for wood work, would love to pick up a small lathe and mill one day.

Well, that was for a customer. If I had something to go by for a larger model I'm sure I could do it, just haven't put the time in to trying to design one yet.

Nice spread. We got the same Monarch at work in the shop.........and no body runs it anymore Send most everything out now to get done, but when I find something my trusty 9x19 can't handle at home, you know where I head. Then its.... Its got to be one of these levers, I know it!!!!
