    Dependant On Technology

    Something I've noticed with a lot of the digital tools is that the more you pay for it the longer the battery time. I use a TESA at work and it usually takes a year before the battery is dead. At home I used to use a cheat diesella and I had to change the battery about every month. threw it away...

No we don't and we don't need to! :P Why did you learn to...

    Wohlhaupter head

    They still make their boring and facing UPA heads. Not UPA1 and UPA2 but still UPA3-6 Really nice tools! ;D They actually still scrape the ways on the UPA's. Their digibore line is amazing! I believe that the entire line is selfbalancing and you really avoid a lot of mistakes with the digital...

    Wohlhaupter head

    A few months ago I visited the Wohlhaupter factory in Frickenhausen and I was very impressed with the German handwork, Something that testifies to the quality of Wohlhaupter is that they quite often decide to repair a damaged tool rather than make a new one! On the factory I saw a boring tool...

    Tin's QCTP x 4

    Nice! I like the idea of standardizing tooling, makes everything much easier. So did you cut the dovetails on the shaper or? Pictures would be appreciated! :)

    Tin's QCTP x 4

    Looks nice! But why 4? :) Please tell me it is because you have 4 small lathes placed different places around the house! ;D That would be cool! ;D

    Casto Saw

    Quite long and they should last a lot longer now because with coolant in the cylinder it makes a much softer stroke, also having different blades with various teeth numbers helps! It is a nice saw, but bandsaws are faster and cheaper in the long run(if you get one with a blade brush)
