Pieces Parts

One of my car digests noted yet another sign we are all living science fiction: E-machine, the first company (that I know of) that makes all those hyper-fancy computer-controlled machine tools available to just about anyone. All you need to do is create what you want in their (supposedly) easy-to-use software, send it to them (with a check, of course), and a few weeks later your part arrives.

Alfa Romeo is world-famous for requiring a whole chest of custom tools to do any real work. They are, of course, no longer available, but maybe with this service and the right plans...

eMail this entry!

and you know, with that waterjet cutting and some flat steel, Ellen could make some really neat kitty things - or, if Damon still has the plans for the graphics on Bones, they could cut that out and you could have it on the front lawn
