    This last week I completed enough of swarfrat's VATOC engine
    http://swarfrat.com/TheVATOCEngine.htm
    to have it run. I may bling it up a bit or I may build another one but up the scale a bit
    and then bling them both. This was a fun project and I don't think it would be beyond
    anybodies ability. After all I was able to do it. It does pretty much require having a
    rotary table if you want the "variable angle" part that's at the heart of this engine.

    I can also highly recommend the Mill Spindle Centering scope

    I first saw this in action when I purchased the VATOC DVD and knew it would be a great
    and practical project. I built it before I built the VATOC and I now use it extensively.
