    Sweet mill, Allen. Is the motor controlled by a VFD? And what is the maximum spindle speed?

    Got most of that already Ken. It's a NT30 spindle and Ive got ER40 collets from 3mm to 26mm. A rotary table, a small tilting and rotating vise. Going to be building a purpose built vise at Micheal's in a couple of weeks and perhaps some fixtures for necks, and I'm just sussing out which of the 3 axis DRO's to buy. I'll post some pictures later on.

    Yes, its a VFD and maximum speed is 2250 rpm. It's bloody brilliant to use, and so quiet that my fan makes more noise than this mill.

    Anyone that feels like a bit of a holiday in the tropics is always welcome to a shed tour and a few beer. And hell yes I'm having fun.

    Now come on the rest of you. The point of this is for everyone to show just a little glimpse of what is happening in their shed, or on the kitchen table. It doesn't have to be out of this world. Just show us something of what you've been up to.

    Great looking tool!
    I have two stakes in the ground marking the outlines of an extension to my shop.
    Like everything else in life, now that I'm living on guitar repairs and building instruments, things have to wait till there is a decent pile of excess money, to move ahead on projects.

    Here's my garden shed that I've been converting to a work shop. I ran power out to it in January, and I've slowly been chipping away at getting it ready for full production. I added insulation between the wall studs, and because the OSB floor felt a bit spongy, I decided to put down a hardwood floor. I also had some red cedar shiplap left over from another project that I decided to use for the interior siding. I just finished up moving the rest of my tools and getting things organized this past weekend, I think I'm ready to go. Here are a few shots.



    Here's me laying the hardwood floor, and then the finished product.

    Here's the shiplap siding going up.

    My workshop has a well deserved break while I'm in Palestine to do some "real work"... Money must be made.
