For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety.

New Milling Machine

I made myself an investment. I'm used to having access to a milling machine, though I have two at work, that's not the 24 hour access that I like. Having left my shop and moved everything home...I was in need of a new solution.

In comes Precision Matthews. I've hemmed and hawed over the purchase of a bench top mill for quite a while. It's not a small amount of money involved, so I took my time.The Little Machine Shop has some good options. There is also Grizzly. What made Precision Matthews the one for me is the size. It is one of the largest so-called "benchtop" mills. Grizzly has an option of similar size though I didn't care for the way the bed and tower mounted together.

This is just a brief preview. As I use it more and more, I'll be able to offer a little more insight.

First part I'm making...a new iron for my Norris smoother (more on that soon).
