I enjoy making and repairing machines and tools. Welding and CNC plasma cutting.
We also grow garlic commercially

What machines do I have? Hmmm
Well, I have a Lagun FTV-3 mill, and a"Western" lathe made by Mysore Kirlosker sometime in the mid 1970's.
All kinds of other stuff, CNC plasma, Nider gearhead drill press, press brake, little 20 ton Mubea ironworker, welders, etc.
