Those are pretty cool. Wonder how many kids know what they are, since we don't have metal shop in school anymore. I was also wondering if they run smother on 3ph. Mrpete has an aluminum mill model that is over the top

3phase is smoother so I went with that, but probably should have gone with single and vfd's for better speed control. Oh well.

The drill press is single.

I made them from parts and imagination. I did post the designs and parts lists.

So, are the pieces for this available somewhere?
You have to order them individually from someone?

These are my own creations. The plans to build them are in links in the first post. You can buy parts from bricklink and other places.
