New work started in the end of October, the machinist is a compilation of ideas about machining, the main image is a micrometer a device which is used to measure between a set distance 0-1 inch or 1-2 inch for each instrument. The , vernier scale is used to read measurements to .0001" as an example sheet printer paper measures .004"
Other elements are CNC G-code programming examples, technical drawing layout in perspective done in stainless steel. As additional elements are added, there will be more to follow on this work, stay tuned...

Building the standoffs for the stainless steel elements representing the Technical drawings, Cut and TIG weld stops to each of the 24 .1975" diameter stainless steel shafts, then each is tapped 10-24 thread. I chose to make these from bar stock as apposed to using threaded rod, this way the visible portion of the standoffs will be smooth, instead of being threaded the entire way.
Machinist panel with the line elements mounted creating the wire frame illusion from the TIG welded stainless steel, with the .500" standoff height. The addition of shadows caused by lighting embellishes the surface with depth. Next image: W 60" x H 37" x D 2" work to date, more to follow.
