Mostly for model building, but I've got some full size stuff going as well.   Working on an adapter to run small engines on Propane, without changing/modifying the "can't get parts or replacement carbs" carb.

I see you have the riser blocks on your lathe.   Did you do the column extension on the mill.  I did and it helped.  but have not done the riser blocks on the lathe.  Of course I now have 10x24 lathe, and RF-30 style mill to use doing larger items.

 I haven't needed to extend the mill height (yet).    But it's on my list of stuff to get at some point.

LMAO.

I guess I asked for that one ;D
Looking at the bench and part or tool boxes, made me think the post is showing a sort of hobby or scale model building operation.
Which I love to see,  could also be big into clock building, who knows?
I'm always interested is what folks use their machines for. I get the impression sometimes, right or wrong, that quite a few collect dust.

Duplicating scale replicas of anything takes an extreme amount of everything, patience, talent and fortitude. As does with any raw materials a machinist turns into a completed working, whatever.

Respectively,

I agree, and the smaller the model, the harder it is. I have no idea how someone can make something so small that my 3.0 reading glasses still have trouble picking up the detail on.  Add to that a magnifier and still I struggle...... How do they do that.
