If I had the $$$, of course I'd be Nuckin' Futz. I'd buy all that fancy stuff and then figure out how to use it.

For now though, I just make friends who have the tools and skills I don't have.

well i'm kind of between Nuts and Nucking Futs....

I'm a protoype designer/Fabricator and have access to 2 CNC mills, CNC lathe, CNC roller.... as well as the rest of the manual stuff.... we are in the process of purchasing a CNC tube bender as well....

but the cherry is that I can cast almost anything that I would like to as we have a mini foundry here as well....

According to the poll I would be nuts, but only because of the equipment listed. I figure out a way to build everything that I want with what I have, there is almost always a way.
