    Gingery Machinery (videos)

    Dave Gingery's designs for homemade machine tools have been famous for decades and are still quite popular. The machines are intended to be entirely scratch-built, starting from self-cast aluminum components. For a look at a few of the machines in action, check out these videos (including efforts by HomemadeTools.net's own Rick Sparber and Scorch!):

    Its great to honor Dave Gingery! Building one of these machines is a first rate experience. You really grow to understand how it works. I use my gingery Drill Press many times a day. The shaper is fun to watch but I have to admit I don't use it often. But when I need to cut an internal keyway, it is perfect for the job!
