History 01-01-2019: Home Shop Machinists Podcast, 3d printer
Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 18 – NYCNC We had John Saunders as a guest on the Home Shop Machinists Podcast, very enjoyable discussion.

The devil entered my shop in form of a 3d Printer: Creality Ender 2 3d Printer

01-08-2018: Knuth KSW 200 Universal T&C grinder
I added another machine to my arsenal, this time a small universal tool and cutter grinder, made by Knuth.

More about the machine here: Knuth KSW 200 Universal T&C grinder

On the other hand, a machine left my shop: The Gack HE20 shaper.
I sold it to a good friend to make room in my shop for the t&c grinder. I did not use the shaper very much anymore, only for one recuring job, that I will do on the milling machine in the future and for the occasional keyway.

21-05-2018: Six jaw chuck, Home Shop Machinists Podcast
I got a new chuck for my lathe: A Zentra six jaw.
More about the chuck and the backplate: Zentra six jaw chuck
