I have been looking for a good machinist's forum that also dabbles in gunsmithy. Do any of you have a watering hole like that you like to frequent?

And there's a gunsmithing forum there, too.

Not being a certified gearhead yet, I only read to learn. I really like their history forum. Here's a pic of a tool chest from the early 1600s.

Even Williamsburg doesn't have a jewelry chest type machinist chest. :eek: At least if they do, it wasn't on display.
