I started this web site because I missed running one.  I ran a computer BBS and then a web site about general aviation in New York State for about twelve years until I finally burned out.  Getting married and suddenly having much less spare time also had something to do with it.

I began accumulating a lot of notes, useful links and other resources when I took up metalworking as a hobby in the Spring of 2007.  I believe in sharing knowledge and I enjoy teaching others so it was natural to start putting it on the Internet.

There’s one more thing you need to know about me.  I believe that spending time with my family and working in my shop is much more important than spending time in front of a computer monitor.  So progress on this site might appear to be slow.  But be patient with me.  I’m also steady, and you’ve probably heard about how that race between the tortoise and the hare turned out.

  1. Hi Rob,
    – I have a Sherline Lathe and Mill (ok – in addition to a CNC’d South Bend 9″ and South Bend 10″, two (2) DynaMyte DM3000 CNC Lathes (upgraded to Mach3 – was fun programming the tool turret), a SuperMax YCM-30 CNC Mill (Upgraded with Larken drivers and mach3), a scratch built 2’x4′ CNC router, and a brother TC-215 cnc mill CNC is a bit of an addiction for me…. apparently.

    >>> Would you mind if I saved your Sherline rear mounted tool holder to PDF and posted it out on the FaceBook Sherline group section? I think it would be a great add to the forum.

    Thanks for any help.
