    I used to work with a guy who had a Singer car. Naturally it was named 'Pearl'.

    I have heard our Holke mill called 'Hogan'....

    Cat named Wheel. His full name is Wheel Chock. The lady vet asked me waht a wheel chock was. She did not think it was a proper name or use of a cat.

    The big Niagara press brake is Carrie and the smaller Niagara press-brake is Christine. The two Diacros I have by my work area... Statler and Waldorf. And the big flywheel press I just finished repairing is Gonzo.

    No Kidding. And to think I was about to toss mine in the recycle pile. Now I got a project!

    Let me introduce Ms Grazi....

    my SAG 12 currently undergoing a facelift. At this time she has new slippers (Turcite saddle ways) on a freshly ground bed:





    When finished, I will have a coming out party for her.... It's hard not to get attached after spending so many hours together and a name seems natural.

    I don't think POS is a name... (isn't that an adverb instead?)

    I just picked uo another Brideport this morning. Still in the truck With a 10HP comressor, an Enco mill,2 welders, & a Jet bandsaw still on the traier & over 1000# of new steel I got out of there scrap bin. It was a very great day! Didn't have room for the Desoto running gear, I'll get it next trip. I'll name her Brigget. An old pilot friend would never buy an un named plane. Said if the owner didn't namee it he didn't love it & he's right.

    Nice looking mill. One thought. I would be moving that grinder as far from the mill as I could get it. I had my surface grinder 4 feet away from my mill and I think that was of the cause of the X and Y lead screw nut failure. I'm working on replacing them now.

    You're not supposed to anthropomorphize your tools. They don't like that.

    Hell, I don't even name my dogs or horses let alone machines.

    I would have named our daughter Girl but the wife said no.

    You are in very good company.

    My car is Issac. It's a purple shade of grey. Sort of like a mauve color.
    Issac, As-a-mauve. I'm a sci-fi fan.

    My mill is Wong Fu ( as in Mr Wong, not Mr Wright) . My lathe is Mr Maroon.

    My wife names all her cars Mandy. She's on her 4th or 5th Mandy.


    Goood company.

    Dan
