Our Workshop
« on: April 13, 2017, 01:32:15 PM »
Hi there,

here are some pics of my workshop.

First you see my Milling Machine I build last year.
Dimensions are 1200x660mm.
I build it because my "old" machine was with 400x300mm to small for big planes.
But at this Time I never build a big plane.  ::)

Secand you see my manuel Milling Machine and my Lathe.
They are the same as EMCO8 Models. I got it from my father, because he bought new one. (Thank you Dad!)

Third is may workingplace and my 3D printer.

4th are my Planes and Helicopter "Place".

5th and 6th are machines of my father. He also have a big Lathe Machine and a smal CNC Milling Machine, and, and, and,....

My favorite material is wood.
I make Planes, Clocks, Christmas Deco, Puzzles and so on.
Now I want to build something like my fahter do.
The machines are there but I 'll learn to work with it.  ;)

Regards Toby

Everyone needs a Dad who gives them machine tools.  :cartwheel:

I am sure that we can encourage you to want to extend your workshop  :naughty:

Enjoyment is more important than achievement.

Hi Toby all looks great and encouraging for myself.

I'd be interested to know your opinion on the Optimum Mill??? I'm greatly considering one.
