Operating machines is perfectly safe......until you forget how dangerous it really is!

Yep! What Glenn said! Beautiful workmanship, with very nice detail.

Nifty looking models! Tell us the story how you made them!! Also, are these casting kits of some sort?

The machines are casting kits from PM Research

I build a machine as distraction between engines projects. Some of the parts are very small and I had to make some Small cutters for the T slots, the Dovetails and the chuck grooves for the jaws.
In the process I learned that tapping #0-80 is no big deal.
