    300 years of fine tools museum exhibit

    This one is from the excellent forum at PracticalMachinist.com. Lots of pictures of a "Labour, Craftsman, Artist - 300 Years of Fine Tools" exhibit at the Toy and Miniature museum in Kansas City, MO.

    In this thread, rivett608 demonstrates the correct way to visit a museum exhibit - with camera in hand, taking copious amounts of photographs, and posting them to a forum.

    Rill Robertson (rivett608) is himself an incredible miniaturist. It's well worth viewing some of the masterpieces he's built, documented in the Craftsmanship Museum...

    rivett608 is Bill Robertson! Wow, had no idea, good call. We previously featured his stuff in this subforum, but I had no idea that they were one and the same: tool miniatures by William R. Robertson

    I actually saw another miniature modeler mentioned in that thread, Paul Hamler, and I bookmarked some of his stuff to feature in another thread.

    Glad you liked it. I've spent a lot of time on those myself.
