Yep, cnc is cool, always loved those expensive parts made in the early 90's. A manual lathe is also usefull for making ferrules, shims and stuff like that.

that's an incredibly nice brake! Really nice job! If you like DIY stuff, you could even do the anodising yourself.

Thanks, Anodising would be good!

I have about 15 pairs of my cable hangers made and polished ready for anodising. I have seen the great anodising / polishing thread on the main forum and am impressed with their results. I want to avoid the chemicals and equipment though so I will try some local anodisers first.

I want to spend some time building a new and improved enclosure for my mini mill.... it all takes quite a bit of time!
