Awesome miniature tools


Recommended Posts

Moab,

 

This is the kind of stuff I just love! I wish I had the ability to do things like that. It always amazes me what some people can make. No 3D printer and his machines don’t appear to be CNC. It just shows what people are capable of creating. I could look at this for hours and probably will. Thanks for posting this.

 

I wonder if he can make a miniature Knew Concept saw?

Is there a forum for work at this caliber?  I’m not that interested in Folk Art or Doll House miniatures. I know there was a magazine in the mid 1980s Scale Wood Craft that I had a subscription to that was full of this kind of stuff. The Sherline site has a section on fantastic craftsmen, but that is rarely added to.

There is. I've lost the link to it but they have model cars, airplaines, and a tools section.   We've had links to it in the past here and as soon as I find it, I'll post it.

 

Ah... found it.  https://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/index.html   You'll need to do some digging to find tools.    By the way, GDW who makes ship's, etc. all beautifully machined, etc. is a member and poster there https://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Wingrove.htm

 

Here's the link to the page with the index https://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/rooms.htm

I didn't realise that the craftsmanship museum was part of Sherline.    My bad.

Mark,

No problem at all. I appreciate that you took the time to post the link. I think it physically in their building. I've been looking at that site for years. A lot of talent there. Some of the model cars there are fantastic.

Have a nice Thanksgiving.

I looked through the blog back a few years ( truly amazing ). It looks like he came pretty close to Knew Concepts in 2016 ( or they came pretty close to him! ). My hat’s off to the gentleman for sure. I would give almost anything to see his work in the flesh.

Spruced up my fret saw a bit.

Another site with some pretty awesome stuff is from one of the sponsors here - Scale Hardware

https://www.modelmotorcars.com/museum/scale-hardware-model-museum/

 

If you're into cars, there are several other pages of models that you can get to from the top level of their site - https://www.modelmotorcars.com/

Click on the Museum button at the top of the page.
