"I think most of us would be happy to be able to go to a shop to do our own parts but having one in your own back yard that's the cats meow."
Agreed Rick. My 'Machine shop' is in the corner of my workshop/kitchen😉
Dunno what scale Ian and Peter (Mouldbuilder) are building to but I build to anywhere between 720 to 35.
Consequently my 'machine shop' is also 'scale size' 😁
Nothing I can't lift with one hand!
(Except perhaps the scroll saw in the cellar.)
Cheers, Doug 😎
