This reminds me of those old Deltagrams they used to produce in the 40's and 50's. Okay it was way before my time, but my Grandfather gave me a bunch of them. I think I only have one left, but it would explain in detail how to make projects out of a single machine. Its not like it is now where it takes a ton of machines to produce a single project. Oh no. With Deltagrams one tool could do it all, from drill holes with a drill press, to routing with a drill press, to drilling glass with a drill press, to doing lathe work with a drill press, I think you get the idea.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
