Pics are a 3d printer, a cnc machine, a foundry, a chop saw (for metal), and a miter saw (for wood)
Here are some more essentials. A forge, an anvil, a bench belt sander, a bench grinder, and an arc welder.
This is going to be a good thread.
These are all pretty useful, but not all of them are essential. A band saw, a drill press (definitely essential), a lathe, a table saw (essential for larger wood working projects), and a kiln.
And obligatory eye protection inside the shop.
Any actual technicians ITT or are we just posting Ebay results?
I had an Austrian hobbyist lathe before, 450mm between points.
I did some model railroad wheels with it and some other pieces.
Is this the 3D printer thread?
I think getting one might be a good idea in this era since things might get a lot worse and they might stop selling them.
Make it one. I have an Ender 3. I would recommend it to anyone. It's cheap, easy to use, and has a large printing area.
Ender 3s are nice introduction machines.
Can it make cool things like custom pony figurines, tubes, assorted mechanical parts, custom anime figurines, long sharp metal parts for DIY meme-robot-making youtube videos, and wooden carvings?
