    Very busy week-end

    After committing on a bench lathe and milling machine two weeks ago, this week-end was a good opportunity to fit them out with the usual goodies.

    New hobbyist from Quebec

    I've been a quiet member since last winter when I signed up but now decided to say hello. I bought a King Industrial combo mill/lathe last January and made some chips with it. Few tough lessons learned later, I trust I have improved my skills and knowledge into the art. Because I believe that...
