So, I musta missed this -- when did they (UN? Socialist Cabal? Lizard Men?) outlaw private ownership of machine tools?

Pre ban Powermatic Houdaille vertical milling machine

I am furious! Now I know why the BLACK HELICOPTERS have been seen flying over my shop... I don't have a milling machine, but they can have my Sheldon lathe when they can pry it from my cold dead fingers (bring heavy rigging equipment).

Well, I suppose you could convert it to CNC, but where would you put the printer?

"CNC"? "Printer"? Any Journeyman Machinists can make firearms the old fashioned way, like they've done in Connecticut for hundreds of years.

True, but even more simply -- with the addition of a tapping head you could produce your own wingnuts.....
