Assuming I can make Photobucket work, here are a few of my current projects in preparation for the upcoming holidays.
Well that worked - now if I could figure out how to have cropped the top of the picture it would look like I knew what I was doing.

Go to http://com-puterworks.com/Free_Downloads.htm and download Paint shop Pro V 7 and the patch. Install it and with a little practice you can modify that picture to look like you want it to.

Nice work there.

Lathe Dog, no, the CNC isn't that far along but I hope to be able to do it some day.
I just finished cutting some #2 Morse tapers on the CNC and that is the only way to cut a taper. There is no messing around setting, checking, moving, etc. Set .050 TPI in your program and it cuts .050!
I have the sensor for the spindle now and hope to get it set up soon so I can try threads.
Thanks for the kind words. John

Thanks fellows, I knew there was nothing to it! Next time I'll send the pictures to you guys first and let you fix them up.
Remember that some of us old fellows (76 in January) are a little slow on these new computer things you guys have! John
