Some of us value handwork

Jim Matthews
Many that straddle the eras of analog Bridgeport and CNC (I witnessed the swift demise of Cincinnati Milling Machine) value the subtle I fixations left by a skilled maker's hand. They're significant connections to those who came before us.

These are significant in their embodiment of patience, practice and products in the tangible World - lasting artifacts that our descendants will value.
