          Monte since your here I have a question about your cnc table.
          Was it complicated to get everything hooked up?
          I mean do you need to be a computor wizard?
          And did you had a plan that you followed?
          I like the midget car those are sweet, you still have it?

The park/turn lights which used to be in the rubber bumper are now mounted behind the grill. It looks cool when the lights are on. It has the 1500 cc engine. I repaired the interior and dyed it black. It was a faded camel
            color. The color is Corvette Torch Red. My brother and I painted it in my shop. I did all the body and mechanical work. Sorry about the photo quality.
            I took digital pictures of 3.5 x 5 photos. All I had.
            The last pic is another project of mine. It is of my daughter and a friend. I had help with her.
            She's a 1975 model.
            Nice looking MG. I'd like to get my hands on a 52TD but will never have that kind of $$$$.

            I'm sure the daughter takes her good looks after her mother (just joking) she is very pretty. I'd almost swear that's the now govenor of CA standing beside her. Did he say "I'll be back" after the photo?

              Yeah, that's Arnie. Btw...the pic is real. My older daughter is a pro competitor in fitness competition. She has been invited to compete in a couple of his events. The daughter you see goes to her events and will rub elbows with many celebs and have people take pics. I have pics of the older with Billy Blanks and others. Here is a pic of my older daughter with Arnie, I think it was 2004 or 2005.

                Building a cnc anything takes a lot of thought. No, I am not a computer wizard by any means. I had never done any of this before. I had never been exposed to cad/cam programs at all. I joined the CNC Zone forum and read a lot and asked a lot of questions. I started in August of 2006 and had it built and cutting its first piece in November and posted a short video on Youtube at the end of November 2006. I've since purchased 3d cad software to run on it. Really cool.
                I still have the Midget. To me it's like a street legal go kart.

                    Nice Midget! Similar kind of a car to mine. About the grill, was it pretty simple to make??? I'm just a beginner but i think i could do it. Any advice, since i want to build one for my car... the volvo, to fill that big gap where the previous owner built a lame one. Where did you start??? Thanks in advance for any help/advice....!!!!?????

                      The grill in the picture is the first I made for the car. I used hollow aluminum
                      streamline tubing that can be found at hobby shops. It is not real strong not that it has to be. I replaced it later with solid round aluminum which I polished to a chrome like finish. My grill is straight where it looks as if you will have to arch yours a little. In mine I have two upright pieces painted black ane the grill rods are attatched to that. For a clean look screw into the rods from the rear. I have seen some newer pickup trucks with this type of grill. Maybe a salvage yard might have one you could modify. I made one years ago for my 1968 Jaguar XKE. It really looked good.

                        I found this drill press for $50 dollars that came off of a gang drill press that a machine shop was parting out. It is a variable speed from 50 rpm to 1500 rpm. It is a 1957 Buffalo 1a rpm master machine and it works great. I made the drill table the same height as my work table so if I have something long to drill I have support for it. It is the best drill press I have used in a long time very user friendly.

                            The very best part about this project? It gave me the perfect excuse to buy a small iron worker (MetalPro 45) in order to punch 1/2" square holes.Name:  54e9f74389493746d97ffbe312a7c841.jpg

                              Here is a cat sculpture I made for fun.

                              It was at the local powder coating shop being coated in black when another customer saw it and wanted it for his wife.

                              Didn't expect this, but the customer is always right so I had it re-done in orange and airbrushed in some features to match their tabby.

                              Timing is everything !

                              Customer was happy and I got a new wireless foot control out of the deal !

                              Now I'll need to make another to match my cat, but that's the fun part.

                                Hi Daniel,

                                Beware what you ask for............................!

                                This started when a dentist gave me a set of denture samples.

                                They sat for a long time until I saw a re-run of Mr Ed the talking horse show.

                                Now I was inspired. (also 3 or 4 beers helped)

                                Dragon is assembled from many stainless mixing bowls and assorted stainless scrap pieces I had around.

                                He was named "Mr Ed" and now lives in a friend's garden in Philadelphia.
