    Default Hello and pics from the shop

    Hi PM'ers

    Its been a while Ive been browsing around and got a nudge from Mebfab to chat it up a bit.. so id figured its about time I introduced myself and the shop. There is a ton of knowledge and wisdom here and its much appreciated that its so easily available and searchable.

    The shop is located in St Peters Missouri about 30 miles west of St. Louis.
    My name is Matt.
    I got started officially in Dec of 2011 and have bounced in and out of working full time for myself..and presently working alot here.
    website is davenportdesignsllc.com and there is more info there if you are curious.

    Ive got a Tree 325 that I put a GSK retrofit on after the original spindle drive took a dump. Its been a great setup for me.

    Two CNC lathes. One Clausing Storm 80 and I just got a Hardinge 8/52 live tooling machine. The Clausing has been solid and made alot of money for me. Really happy and excited to have the Hardinge now too. Its like a Cadillac compared to the Clausing..

    A couple manual machines.. one Harrison 10AA and a Lagun FTV1. Also really happy with the Harrison. Its super smooth, accurate and solid.

    Also have a band saw and a Sanford hydraulic surface grinder. Im curious if anyone has one of these grinders. It has a ton of Z height.
