    Thanks bud. He had a lathe, drill, grinders, table saw, and a small wood chipper all running in unison driven by hit &miss, belts and pulleys. Here is a detail of the automatic drill press.

    That's a lovely bit of kit. I really like these old tools, you can tell they are slightly over engineered to make them sturdy and resiliant so they just tend to work.

    Hey, I've got one those, only mine is a post mount. Rebuilt it for the heck of it, and still don't use it.

    But first we would have to learn to take care of ourselves with the same care we do our tools :1398:

    Wonderful B&W photos, JC! I especially like #3, which to me is a very solid,solid photo. Timeless. I also like the fifth shot quite a bit too.

    #5 is my fave. For me, I think you should have gotten much closer in most of your images in order to effectively address the project name of "Hands". The processing and conversion is super, but, (the big but), I think all of the images could have been improved by getting tighter/closer. Don't misunderstand my critique, these are wonderful, but I think they would have been better if you had gotten closer.

    Thanks, I really wanted to get tighter but he was roped off due to kids I think. You know, saw blades, belts & pulleys, etc. I wish I would have brought the 55-200 and I thought this very thing when I shot this. I think the project was a good learning experience. I am at a point now where I can walk up to scene and know what lens to use. The 55-200 street project you challenged me on brought that home.

    Side note, I did crop 1, 3, and 5 and printed for frame. They look fantastic. Just got them back yesterday. Glossy
