I bought a DRO Pros set up. for my Mill. About $600.00 for 2 axis.
Way cool sort of place. I love it. When you say making bullets, is he building casting dies, swaging tools, jacket drawing and forming, jacketed bullet forming tools? I would have felt like I should pay him while visiting...
Seems he did it all, I get pretty focused on my service calls so my questions to the customers are pretty limited.
You'd be amazed how many customers have neat businesses set up in the basement. Last week I had a guy with a robotic type machine that was maybe 3' wide by 4' wide and maybe 10" tall. The purpose of the machine is to automatically build circuit boards for a big company that builds tread mills. Retired engineer (not really rerired) that found a niche. He had a full blown production electronic fabrication shop in his basement that was less than 10' wide and maybe 6' deep.
While the water heater was draining I watched this littlerobot build a circuit board. Mind blowing really.
Have another customer who builds the striker ends underground moles for underground horizontal drilling.
Another customer with a fab shop building components for $20,000 hospital beds.
I could go on and on and on.
If of interest, building and outfitting my own tiny home machine shop:
What is that white stuff on the ground?
Cotton from the nearby cotton field after a windy day. I know about hot air.
Something else. I would like to have a Lister. At this time for several long dark days for my solar system I'm using a little B&S engine powering a GM auto alternator running on NG that I made to charge the batteries if needed. Not used last winter.
Super cool, We could totally hang out! Haha
