Some pretty nice stuff you have collected there. Looks like a Harley-Davidson crankshaft truing stand in the middle of the bench there, only not so heavy duty!

Your collection is impressive and the shop is neat and clean. Everything is either on display or in its place. It would qualify as a museum or gallery and if you have a gift shop at the exit I won't be surprised.

I'm sure that you have more to share in your next set of pictures. Thanks for making my tool collection look meagre.

Looks like CERN particle accelerator service room.
Now I know how to spend my salary.

Zapjack,

Thank you for sharing your shop. I must admit I am impressed by your lathe and accessories. If I can dream about the unobtainable (for me) Monarch, I can also dream about the unobtainable Schaublin.

Best wishes for more future projects.

It's nice to see some metal chips at the base of the mill and on the shelf of an adjoining table. It feels more like home.

I can see the robust table and twin vertical posts for the drill press adding rigidity but I thought that drilling accuracy comes from the quality of the chuck.

Is your chuck special too? Just curious as it's an upgrade that I would consider.

You're right DJP, the drill had an upgrade many years ago
Also the massive table machinned in a raw bloc of allied steel.
Chuck is an "ALBRECHT" 0-1/4"

Stand-by. because I have some problem for the machining of the connecting rods
Mainly the "fork" one.
And I make the promise to build the Lanz HP at first.
After the "HP", I will finish the De Havilland Gipsy and than come back on the Merlin. Unfortunately, I have only 28 hours in a day
I have a very demanding work, I'm leaving home at 6AM and coming back around 7PM, when I'm not in a foreign country. I work abroad as technical consultant.
Regards
LeZap
