Here's a sequence of pictures from my workspace. Yes, we do really have to work too, but since we live and breath engineering, its not much of a deal.

This is a picture of the latest of our products. Its a scientific instrument for measuring the properties of liquid  - metal, glass, pretty well anything that hasn't vapourised by 1750 C

Step 1: Mechanical Workshop (lathes)

We make ALL our own mechanical parts for the instruments. That means we need a full-service machine shop at our disposal. Here it is. We start with the lathes.

We have one working CNC lathe, and two other CNC projects of Steve's lying around. There are another three manual machines, which since the XYZ CNC you see here arrived, have seen a lot less use.
hey Steve need help with led lights plus resisters plus led driver

Keep kickin' Steve, you exposed me to everything I know about my Obsession, <br>LED's, damned'em! <br> <br>Zapp

I agree, you can tell by the pixels. I've seen a few 'shops in my time.
Amazing! What a fun place to work.
It is a fun place to have fun as well.<br><br>*fondles his laser cut chess board*
