Nice work, its small items that can make a project stand out. If you don't mind me asking, what tooling do you have to make this stuff? i'd love to get a small lathe and mill setup to tinker with, but with budget ones costing upwards of £1k each its hard to justify purely for hobby use.

It's all industrial spec machinery ,as you say it's hard to justify the cost of equipment just to make a few parts as and when you require .
