Fabricating a Work Table

Fabricating a Work Table

What a fucking horrible week. It's now official. The law of the land. We all have to live with gerrymandering while listening to the racist rants of a fucking Liar in Chief. After being pissed on all year, we get dumped on with a big sack of retirement shit. Oh, the table. TIG welded + CNC machined leveling foot. Yeah, for all you "patriotic" fuckers who like to shop at Harbor Freight, the Miller TIG welder used to weld the table is made in USA; the Haas CNC VMC used to machine the leveling foot is made in USA; the UNICOMP keyboard I am using to type this fucking sentence is also made in USA.

Sewing Machine Stand

A Tippman Aerostich (Made in USA) pnematically operated sewing machine was recently acquired and was in need of a stand.  A quick sketch was rendered using OpenSCAD, the square tubing frame was welded with a Lincoln SP170-T MIG welder, and the table top was routed using the Haas SR-100 CNC router.
