Definitely I would like to know more about your “self-made machine tool”.

Had to go check your home site, computer programmer and home made mechanical genius. I can kinda,
sorta understand how you might have done this, but to really understand it, I would have to go back to
school for a couple of decades. So I will just say that it is a very impressive project by a very talented
person. Thank you for sharing. I know a guy who used to tie old computers into old lathes and make
them cnc compatible, never could understand what he was talking about, but he made a sweet short
barrel assembly for an AR10.

Excuse, badly I speak the English language.
The machine tool is collected from three old printers (analogue EPSON FX1000).
Three step-by-step engines are used.
It is connected to old computer P2, to LPT to port. The program has written.
Heating element, piece of a wire from a heater in length 1см. It is connected to a power unit for a computer through a rheostat.

Vlad,

Thanks for giving us more information. Don’t worry about your English; you are doing well.

We wish we were smart enough to make something like that!

I can sell the program and the description of manufacturing of the machine tool for a burning out on a tree.

This is interesting – you may be onto something good and I hope it works out for you.
