In the spring 2010, I purchased a Proxxon 230 mini lathe and in the fall same year a milling unit for it. I just switched it on and learned by trial and error. I also bought a book about mini machining and of course I gathered information on the Internet.
My machinery has very limited capacity. I can make wheels and gears for models up to about 80...100 in. wingspan. This is in sychronisation with my shop, car and flying field. If I wanted to go giant scale I'd have to get bigger versions of all those.
