This would be a fun piece http://www.parkercarburetion.com/Advertisers/MDSInc/fs078-ep.html but it's just a bit on the pricy side for a toy. Maybe I can talk someone else into getting one so I can borrow it .

Another tool I'd love to have is a Bridgeport mill. You can make a lot of things with those!

Bridgeport and a lathe are on my list, a glassbeader of my own and a hydralic press too. One of these days I'll have a REAL garage and start adding "TOOLS".

I have one of each, but then again I make custom knives on the side as a small home based business and they were all TAX DEDUCTIBLE

I have to drive about 40 miles to a friends place, he has all the neat equipment, mill, lathe, press, band saws, glass beader, tig welder, etc.... I sure am lucky to have a friend with this stuff, and lets me use it too. His garage is a metal building (40x70) with the majority of it a museum of drag racing, several old funny cars and a new one, a front engine rail plus lots of memoribilia. I sure like visiting him.

I have to check out the shop of a guy that builds my friends engines. He has some sort of Sunnen CNC machine that once he bolts your engine down, he punches in your engine's program, and it bores and hones all eight cylinders in one shot. Once it gets started, he leaves it until it's done. I think it can even deck the block. I guess it cost over $100k.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

Whatever was at the end of the link is gone now, what was it. I know I want one whatever it is.

I have been trying to get a garage built for the last two years (contractor hell) and it looks like it will be finished at last this month. Then I can begin filling it with cars and tools. I also want a Bridgport but will settle for one of those bench mounted cheap ones. I had one in the past made by Jet. It worked very well. I used it for all sorts of things but mostly head work. I built a mounting jig for small block Ford heads and did all of the guide work, milling, spring seat enlargement, and machining and tapping for screw in studs. It worked very well. This time around I and going to get something that will let me cut valve seats like a Serdi machine. I save enough in machining costs to pay for the machine and I get to write off the initial expense as a business espense because I compete for prizes (racing) which is an allowable business. I am also going to buy a small lathe (7 x 10) to cut seats on the valves and other small jobs.

I think most of you compete in some form of racing that pays the winners. You don't need a knife business to get a tax break when buying garage equipment.

They are great! I have two, a 24x34 three car attached, and last year I built a 24x24 two car garage I call 'the lawn building.' It's good to have all the toys safe and sound, and have a nice climate controlled place to work on them.
Life is good!

What used to be at the end of the link is an endoscope camera/screen like doctors use when their knives are out bein sharpened, only for motors . I've used the Jet mill and I'd love to have one, but for room and money reasons I have a milling attachment for my 1939 Atlas 10" lathe. It can't do a very large part but it can do small stuff very well.
