Very NICE!! has your Dad recieved it yet, if so what did he think??
Yep, I finished it up a couple of months ago, he was amazed at the small size of it. He'd been a machinist since 1937, still has a '50s era Logan lathe in his garage which he uses to this day even thought he is getting toward 91 years old.
BTW, there are model vehicle parts in it. The blue electric motor on top is actually the end of a white metal 1:87 semi truck transmission, and since I'd lost the two crank handles in the kit for each end of the table, I substituted a pair of crank wheels - both are 1:87 scale truck steering wheels, each with a crank handle added into the rim.
