Very exciting things are afoot at HONDO Garage. For instance, we're getting a new cnc mill. I'll be flying down to Malibu, California to pick the thing up and drive it back up to Bozeman, Montana (with the helpful assistance of a long-time friend in San Diego... nothing like a buddy who's willing to help you move a 1500-pound machine 1700 miles). It's going to be a hot drive. Expect a full trip report and maybe some video next week. Until then, here's a video of the machine and the machine's designer, Dave Decaussin. And an interesting article about Fadal, the machine tool company he helped build.
