04-07-2017: Home Shop Machinists Podcast, New project category, one year anniversary of this website
Justin and Max released a new episode of their podcast!
Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 7 – Work Holding

I added a section for work that I did for friends or customers:
Customer Projects

And something to celebrate - at least for me ;-) - This website is in this form online for over one year now. The feedback I got for this style of website was very good, you, my readers for the most part seem to like the simple, minimalistic style of this site and the quality of the content.
Thanks to all of you who read this website, sent me feedback (Sorry. I can not answer each individual email, but I read them all.) or linked my site from somewhere else.
Without you, the readers, this site would be useless.
