Wow, quickdraw! Cool shot of some interesting work. The particile spray makes it for me. The thin DOFF really helps this shot by seperating that busy BG. Nice. Is your name Kurt? Just kidding.

Thanks Mark. I have been waiting to shoot something for the WA. My mind was a blank with the last 2 topics. Extra bonus is we have some pretty interesting stuff to shoot so I reserve the right to revise this a bit.... and I am always looking for chances to use the 50 1.2.
Wish my name was "Kurt" as in the vise. They have made a fortune by making the best available.

OT: Milling with the quill extended = bad practice.

Milling epoxy resin board=does not matter. If it were any kind of metal yes you are correct.

Probably an insert for a fixture we are building. We make checking fixtures for the automotive tubing industry out of various kinds of wood and expxy resin board.

Great shot with lots of action, love the motion and the flying pieces.

Nice shot; I like the way the operator is OOF, emphasizing the work rather than the worker...
