alright I dont have much info on the wepage, I just remember seeing it, and I have'nt been able to find it again ever sense, the page was a guy's home shop, and he had every cutting tool you can amagine, he also had a cnc taig, really nice setup with his computer next to it on the bench, he had really nice high quality pictures of all of his tooling, I cant remember much else about it, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this page or know's how to find it? it is a really cool page with tons of great pictures to look at, (really high quality pictures) any help would be awesome, Thanks.:confused:

You must mean the OCD's delight ;-) Actually I'm jealous and only wish I could be so organized.

ya that is one of them, it is a great page, lots of great tools, little overkill but still very nice, but I still think I saw another one somewhere, I think he had darker lit, and really close up high def pictures of lots of tooling, maybe its this guy, I'll look more on his sight.

That's a lot of equipment to keep clean and shiny ..

Well i suppose he has else nothing to do, but keep it clean and shiny (poor sod) ..since the only thing, it looks like he's made with it all, is a double acting hit and miss engine . :D

expensive engine!

That Parlec vise he shows an animation of being trammed,must have a half thousanth high spot in the center of its jaw.

I really didn't need to know the specs of the Rong Fu mill drill,or the 9" lathe.

Yes,an awesome JOB of putting up a web page,but about what?

It's about having more stuff than the other guy. It is not about having the ability to actually use the stuff better than the other guy, because I don't recall seeing any cool finished projects like yours, George. In fact, there's only a couple of the hundreds (thousands?) of well-lit, sharp photos that show any evidence of chips.

yeah once again everyone wants to jump on some guy they're never met and who's just having fun.....the guy's obviously into collecting and displaying tooling/tooling, a great deal of it is very nice and he's done a good job with the pics. I don't find fault with that or feel the need to criticize, we all get our kicks in different ways many of them not practical. Besides, he's a Phd in engineering, worked in aerospace and weapons systems and has dozens of patents and pulished scientific articles...doesn't sound like a knuckle dragger :rolleyes:

You might take a look at Max's Robot Shop. This guy is amazing: truly a Renaissance Man: mechanical engineer, does incredibly complicated electronic projects, like a LIDAR (Laser 3D Imaging Scanner)!, and has done some of the most incredible machine work I've seen.

The web page is awful, but it's worth the trouble:

Wheels for his Sojourner robot designed to run autonomously around a dirt obstacle course, like a mini DARPA Challenge:

Here's a page describing the machining and electronics work that went into the wheels:

These are the parts for one wheel:

You're right. Someone had just pissed in my corn flakes and I was feeling a bit like lashing out at for no particular reason. Sorry.

Yes I think he is into collecting, not building. I was looking at the web site, and noticed that there are very few projects that were completed with all that tooling. I like to build stuff, but I have a few tools in the shop that I purchased thinking I would need them some day that have never been used.

To each his own!

I think we all have a lot more tools than we really need, and a few we may never use. The difference is that he took really nice pictures of all his and put it on the interweb for everyone to see.

And I have to admit, I really don't make much of anything these days either. My dad hasn't been well, so I'm not inspired to play in his shop if he can't be there with me. I spend more time just sitting and talking with him. The machines and tools get a light patina from sitting, I occasionally go clean it off and spray the steel with LPS3.

If you would care to take a bit of time and poke around on the site, you would find these projects;

He is not just a tool collector, but, obviously a talented machinist who has created a site displaying the various tools and their uses.

Ya,the nerve,he must be one of those neat freaks that cleans his tools,probably even has shelves and places to storge things.

And did you see those workbenches?He has actually got useable un-cluttered work area!

He's like some of you other twisted freaks on this site,you tool picking up,floor sweeping freaks,you know who you are!:D :D

Not me!! I made over 400 feet of shelving,plus lots of counters with shelves underneath,etc.,and still have no place to put anything!!

I have seen his site before. The amount of work, detail, and precision is staggering.
