    Hi all, Jason, new here, from the South West of France.
    Welding as a hobby fixing broken jeeps and other beaten offroad cars in our club.
    I'm using a Kemppi miniarcMig 200, we also have a 60 YO hand built lathe using a Renault 4L gearbox, it's running a bit squarish but it's enough for our needs :)

    I also built a CNC plasma cutter, running Linux CNC with Sheetcam, with an old cheap chinese 40A cutter.

    If i had the cash i'll have a full workshop with a mill and router, but that's in my dreams !!

    BTW i work for a company making micron measurement machines, and i fix / adjust them on site.

    Voila !

    Ahah ok i'll take some when i leave work !
    I think it's my best friend's grand father who made it, it's worn and has been abused but we use it mostly for our off-road cars and nothing requiring precision.

    I had spotted that but I'm not a pedantic person.

    Here the old lathe, we might upgrade it with linear rails and a real tool post one day.
