About:I like to build things that are fun practical and as green as they can be to reduce use of fossil fuels. I like manual tools and working with my hands but I lust for a lathe! UPDATE; december 2011- I finally bought a minilathe a harbor freight 7x10 :) I HAD hope to have one for building prototypes! some tools are not always needed but the ones that reduce waste of time are valuable assets! leaves more time for creative thinking! NOW its time to build a mini factory for all my dusty Ideas to come to life!
