    Post Ebay items - very interesting

    Take a look at this item and also look at the other items he has up for auction. If you like Cabin Fever you will love these.

    I love that little shaper. Gotta have one, just not that one, way out of my budget.

    I agree that the price is high. I sure can't afford it but it is cute. Will be interesting to see if it sells.

    Somewhere out there, is a site (I've lost the link, sadly) of a retired gentleman who makes minature machine tools. What's amazing about them (other than the fact that you can't tell that you're looking at a model he's made and not the real machine) is that be makes them using other minature machine tools that he's made!

    Seeing that machine reminded me of that guy's site.

    Not sure if this is Tuckerfan's lost link, but it sure is a good one:

    I've spent the last few days daydreaming about the Rivett 608 that's on Ebay. Can't afford it and don't have time to fix it. Trying to let go...

    Interesting link, tenfingers, but that's not the one that I had. The gentleman in the one I had was older, his machines were smaller (he held the lathe in the palm of his hand) and one of his minature shops was steam powered!
