I spent my teen years in my dad's machine shop. Skip ahead 50 years thru marriage, moves, careers, kids, colleges, etc, and I bought a used Smithy 3 in 1 mill/lathe. Say what you will, but I found the machine to be capable and enjoyable. As Ray Wiley Hubbard says "And the days that I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, well, I have really good days" I designed this on "Draft Sight" free cad software. Nice program. I intended to post my design. However, I apparently dumped all my files to that wastebasket in the sky... completely gone. Dammit Anyway, here's my engine. I must confess that I'm proud of it.
