Re: [multimachine] Re: Good Job
- Hello George
I lost my copy of the HSM that had your Engine Mill
article but it was what got me started on my quest to
build a multifunction machine tool that anybody can
It's strange but at my advanced age I realize that
machine tools are about all that I believe in. The
lathe, shaper and mill built the foundation of our
current standard of living and there is no reason why
a cheap and easy to build multipurpose tool could not
help the 500 million people that need simple water
pumps or the billion people who live on a dollar a day
Thanks for getting a crazy old man started.
