    That is one of the best looking collections I've seen in a while. As normal would not expect anything less. You are a master and metal is your clay.
    Gorgeous!

    Thanks for the kind words, Nelson. You may enjoy seeing some of my miniature, doll house scale (1/12) accessories made for my metal lathe model...

    I can't seem to find the post where the lathe itself is pictured so I'll add some photos from my collection here...

    Many of the devices which appear on this site have merit because they are ingenious solutions to practical problems.
    Other things are just so good you could LICK 'EM!
    I know you've got a rewards system, but I think the site should institute a new category with the above title to denote anything which truly expresses the ethos of Homemadetools.net, combining originality of thought, consummate skill in execution, and dogged determination to see it through to completion, - sometimes, perhaps, without any clear practical benefit, but just because it CAN be done!
    I wonder how many hours work MKLOTZ put into his series of miniature machine tools?
    Truly awe-inspiring to us beginners.

    I stand amazed at the talent and how real they look. I an sure they would do work in miniature also. It just goes to show what one person can do and what a collection you have. Beautiful work and it take a craftsman with a special talent.
    You have the Midas Touch, beyond beautiful

    Thanks, Nelson and Megagash, for all the kind words. They're much appreciated. The lathe is the most complex of the machine tool models I've built. It represents an entire summer's work, off and on of course, but perhaps an average of twenty hours a week.

    I've also built a working shaper and milling machine. Here's a brief video of them operating in an overhead belt drive test setup I jury rigged to test their operation...



    Another one summer job was my deck gun project...

    That video of the line shaft test rig is pretty awful, made with my very first camera that could do video. I'm going to have to make a new video with my newest camera.
