New Toy, not a gun.

The old man was feeling generous for my birthday the other week. Got me this.

Just need to build a small bench to mount it on. Also going to get myself an x-y table and vice, try my hand at milling some timber. Drill presses are ok for soft material milling, like wood or plastic . I wouldn’t bother with anything harder like aluminium. The bearings in drill presses aren’t really built for any serious side loads.

I love tools and machinery, looking forward to having a go.


That looks good. .I’ve been looking for one for a little while unfortunately cash flow is abit tight this time of year (I’d reckon I’m not on my pat malone there :grinning:)
Look forward to seeing some work done on it.!! :beers:
Ps happy late bday :beers:
