I'm probably in the crusty old fart category. Back in the late 70's when I was in the toolroom they had a Deckel grinder and I think they still had the pantograph but they no longer used it. Same with the rotary head mill. With changing times and shop specialization they farmed out that kind of work. But they'd kept the little cutter grinder and it was nice to have for the occasional special job (some of them Swiss Navy projects). IIRC I still have the little dovetail cutter for an indicator holder that was one of those projects. There certainly is some satisfaction in knowing you can pull something off if you have to rather than feeling completely stymied because you have no good way to get something unique you need right now. Now I've got Quorn benchtop T&C grinder and a special form cutter coming up.
