    Heh,

    There were a bunch of old machine tools left behind in the shop we bought a few years ago.. Been gathering dust ever since. I wonder how big a gun I can make with that big fucker. It will hold a 27" diameter piece of stock.

    I hate you in a manner usually only reserved for the snake in the garden.

    Nice tools, but they many need to be serviced and lubed before you use them too much.

    Which could be used as stupidly precise drill presses. Much to the irritation of the user, no doubt.

    Nah, you use the quill to drill holes. Fuck using the z axis crank for drilling holes.

    Btw using a mill to drill holes is fucking awesome.
