    I just figured I'd start posting some random in progress pictures that show work that's going on in and around the shop.

    This will just kind of be a random collection of pictures so you guys can see what's going on.

    I tend to just pull out the camera and snap some pictures from time to time so here you go.....

    I had to stabilize some scales the other day, so I went ahead and did a bunch of wood scales while I was at it...

    Yesterday I had to mill even a bunch of Titanium squares for folder liners... I do them that way so I can stack about 8 at a time and drill the holes uniformly...

    Below is a pic of some of the knuckles I'm working on...

    And finally, pictures of the Kurt Vise I just picked up. This thing is f'n huge, but about a bazillion times better than the p.o.s. I was using....

    Here's a comparison pic.... You can't really tell from it, but it absolutely dwarfs the old one....
