23-11-2016: Tripan toolholders
Another old project of mine, a set of ten toolholders for my Tripan 111 toolpost: Tripan toolholders

22-11-2016: Toolmakers block
Back in 2013 I made a toolmakers block, which was my first real project where did some scraping. I uploaded the photos and some text to go with it here: Toolmakers block

21-11-2016: Milling machine powerfeed
I built the powerfeed back in August 2015 but I never did a full writeup about it, there was only a four-part video series on youtube showcasing the build.
The complete writeup can be found here: X-Axis powerfeed
