Micro -Machine-Shop
A Hobby Site FAQ, Projects, & Reference Source for Machining & Tool Enthusiasts
microcosm ~ a small, representative system having analogies to a larger system in constitution, configuration, or development.
This site has over 85 web pages containing 2736 different annotated photographs, 70 animations,
plus 325 reference documents on metal machining tools, tooling, modifications, methods, & projects.
Most of the photographs herein are of newly received shop equipment & tools.
I like prototyping machines, tools, & instruments. Let the metal & plastic chips fly!  Alan
