Blacksmith and Machinist?

I find the lathe and mill real handy in my shop. I was able to make all the parts for my Nazel rebuild. Making positives on a lathe for spring swages is a luxury, and running a mill table up into a spinning end mill on irregular shapes is the only way to put an accurate hole in something without sucking the tool into the work and breaking countless bits. Close tolerance machines certainly have their place on occassion.
