    Locomobile steam engine

    I will be watching this build with great interest. I have a real soft spot for steam cars, its such a great combination, cars + steam engines = perfect match. That seems to be a really nice chunk of CI you have there too.

    New mill is on the way

    Great to see you got the mill and it all worked out OK. I know I am really enjoying working with mine, such a difference to the mini mill. I have been looking to fit a DRO so its really great to see your pictures of that too. I like the way you sorted out the Y axis tram too, simple and...
