Hi all, my name is Russell, as per the title I am on the isle of wight. I have been a hobby machinist for a few years, starting out with mostly small machines (proxxon) then moved up to slightly larger import machines.

I now have an 8x16 import lathe, for which I made my own qctp 🙂

I also now have an emco mentor mill, which I bought off eBay, and after a minor restoration, have it up and running nicely, a much greater improvement over the import mill I was using 😁

Hi Brain thank you. I make all sorts really, have made a few components for a colleague that is building a Westfield kit car... Suspension bushings, seat risers and a couple of other parts.

I also make some small semi precision components for a small UK company, that involves a custom 0.5mm single point thread.

I have other interests in the vaping industry and machine custom drip tips, buttons etc 🙂

Hello Mike, thanks for commenting, I'm interested in a varied range of things, I machine 316ss, grade 5 titanium, delrin, acrylics, juma (composite resin) g10, mikarta, Damascus steel, damasteel.

I also have an interest in upgrading my tools by machining parts myself, the mill didn't come with a draw bar, so I have made a couple, and also the the adapter for M10 threaded mt2 taper tooling 😁
