    I decided not to post the whole how its made thing this time, but I would like some C&C, I may try using some strobes next time and get more shots of things actually being machined.

    i used to love machining class but one thing I did hate was the sound of brass being turned on a lathe, its like a kid crying.

    what would make it more interesting to you? possibly nothing, I don't want to have boring pictures. I am thinking maybe more actual machining.
