MY WORK (Being constructed)

As with my other galleries please click on each picture then on "original size" just below the picture to see the largest version I can post in one frame on PBase.

My partner and I own a small machine shop in Sandy, Oregon USA. I am constantly fascinated how by applying the right tool in the right way one can transform a drab piece of metal into a beautiful (in my eyes) and useful piece. Our shop website is www.MPMii.com The pictures in this gallery hopefully convey some of what I see to you.
