Home Machining

Welcome to Mike Dodd's home machining shop. In 2006 I decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a metal lathe and milling machine. So I bought "mini" versions of these machines. Even though they're small, they are capable of turning out some nice work – emminently suitable for the type of projects I'm likely to tackle. Please have a look at my metalworking shop and some of the projects I've undertaken.

In 2011 we built a new house, and set up a machine shop in a 6'x6' closet adjacent to the basement wood shop.

Even though it's a bit cramped, there is sufficient space for the lathe, milling machine, and storage for tools and raw materials. Here are some details.
