    All the tools are mounted.
    Just waiting for the next tool purchase to mill some more positions.

    It probably would have been better to show a shot with some metal content...

    Those drawers look like the ones we use to have to thumb through at the library many years ago to find info (title/author/location) on books.

    Did those come from a library?

    Yep, card catalog. Bit slow on the recall this morning, but think it was around $90-$95. Bought it and a letter file for drill bits and taper adapters.62492_154662891221526_100000334475674_345594_5945224_n.jpg61965_153757967978685_100000334475674_341418_5651751_n.jpgdrill storage.jpg

    First picture is of the card catalog as soon as I got it back to the shop...there are another three rows of end mills drawers below what I first posted

    Only about 7-8 years now. Be forewarned, the disease will take you over a bit at a time. I was lucky to have purchased most of the tooling back when the east coast and rust belt machine shops were dropping like flies in a DDT haze with most of it at scrap metal prices.

    Some more cabinets...5C storage.jpg36083_157779060909909_100000334475674_360373_8111941_n.jpg61965_153757971312018_100000334475674_341419_6507448_n.jpg61965_153757961312019_100000334475674_341416_8288602_n.jpgcarbide drawer.jpg ...and assorted tool ****. Opps, tool p-o-r-n.

    I have had a mill now for the past 17 years but never really got into it. It takes so long to set up that I just band saw anything I need reduced and then linnish to square. I did make some custom handgun grips for a few clients and similar dirt bike parts. Only ever had a few totally mill tools. After all drills, countersinks & counterbores can be used on a drill press. Now I have a new more powerful mill I have decided to tool up. After all my welding needs some milled parts every now and then. My next few purchases are going to be a DRO and a rotary table. Than I should be able to make most things and enjoy the work.

    Have you seen this software ?
    http://swarfer.co.za/lathe/pcd.php
    If you have to mill a circlular hole pattern and you don't have a DRO than give this a shot it is free and is mathamatically correct.
    It even generates CNC G code.
