my new lathe, with DRO (digital read-out) for making stand-offs, bushings, or anything else I might need for my planes...

And....Recently, I bought an older "Kondia" mill, and have just finished doing some refurbishing on it....here are some some pics of before and after.....It had sat in a guys garage for about 30 years, and while he didn't "abuse" it, he sure didn't take that great of care of it. So it took a bit of work to make it even halfway presentable....not the "prettiest Belle at the ball", but certainly usable!!

Finally, got it all finished,(check out pic # 7) with a new switch, a 3 Axis DRO (digital readout) and also a digital readout on the quill also!!

So....the beginning of my life long love of model aircraft began here..... (as far as models go) I received of of these Cox TD-3 control line planes for my eighth birthday, unfortunately, I never got to fly it. My dad and I went out to fly it, and he said "you've never flown one of these planes before, so I think I should fly it first". Unfortunately, "he" had also never flown one either, and did not know that you don't just stand there and spin around in a circle. He got dizzy, the plane went it, and that was it for that plane. Since then, there have been many aircraft, consisting of other "u-control", free-flight, sailplanes, helicopters, and fixed wing aircraft.

More to follow....
