Having never put pictures in a note before, please bear with me. I hope they turn out.

These are pictures of my first project I built using my new milling machine. Can anyone figure out what I built? No, it is not a hammer. I will post answer in a few days.

It's one of those things that rock climbers put in cracks and hang from.

Sorry Old Dog, not an earring for me. Would clash with the buffalo rib I got from a 1/3 Indian buddy that I now have stuck through my nose. (the bone not the Indian):D

Evan, you need to go back to genetic class. Sat through a couple of them at UCLA with my girl friend (now wife ) tryin to get to know her (tryin to make points).


"One third? How does that work?"

One third is the ability of human genetic strings to split, not entirely in half, to combine with another split string making a third set completely different from the parent strings but still possessing major, if not perfect, prints of the three donor strands...


Haa, just kiddin, I only hung out with her for three classes before I lost the thread..I did get to marry her though...JRouche

This whimisical wine bottle holder makes the wine bottle look like it is floating in air. Is a good conversation piece.

The neck is slide in or out until balance occurs. I designed this one for one liter bottles. The dimensions would have to be different is a different size, i.e. 1.75 or 0.5 liter bottle was used. I have a made a drawing if anyone would be interested. I'll post it as soon as I have scanned it.

Nice looking project. Keep up the good work.

Evan,
I don't know how it happened but if David Cofer claims to be a 1/3 German, 1/3 Scot, and a 1/3 Indian at a 100 lbs of each, it's good enough for me.

Here is a drawing I made for the wine bottle holder. I printed on some scrap paper and the other side bled thru when I scanned it. Sorry about that.

Also, I missed putting the vertical dimension on the base. It is 1.5 inch tall. The 9 inch dimension should be 7.75 inches. The overal length is 9 inches.

My mate once went out with this stunning bird, she was half Chinese, half Jamaican and the other half was English.......

Hell, if David slid up next to me at the bar and claimed to be from Alpha Centauri, I'd just smile and ask him if he fancied an Earth beer!
My mother didn't raise any heroes. Well, with the exception of my crazy sister :D

No offence Dave, if you're ever in WA, I'll gladly buy you a beer and yack about machining. BTW, have you done any more with your machinist cam software?
