Very cool little tub there. Even fits two skinny people. :D
I'd have to put that thing on like a pair of pants.
EDIT: Is that your grandma...
That IS old school. I was thinking a Bridgeport with a rotary table. lol
Having VMC's around has spoiled me on stuff like that. Easy two op...

Damned fine result, sir.
This project just keeps getting better.
