Just thought I would do a new thread on the Machine Shop I'm building.
In between the glue & paint drying on the mill.

First up is the Sierra West Bolt Cutter.

And thanks to Brett for making these casting so clean. Also some really good instructions on doing these.

Not sure which one I'll do next.







Note. Don't know why the handles look so red there not. Comments welcome.

One more picture.





Thought you might like to see how it came in the package then with the blacken-it added.

Look at you go.
Multiple projects at the same time.
Nice looking machine.
Our cameras sometimes tend to over saturate colors at times.
That's why sometimes I lower the saturation on some pictures.

As you think, so will you be.

"M" I blacken-it then buffed them out with a felt wheel. Then some of them I did a second time.

Thanks for looking in. I know you know how much time goes into doing these little buggers.

Rick thanks for the tip and looking in. Glad your trip was a good one.
