Check out Chris Bathgate's work. Simply stunning.... And I'd say it is machining artistry to say the least....

I especially liked the pics of his work shop. He must have a crew of gnomes working on those small parts and cleaning up the shop! LOL

There was a german machinist in town who had his journeymans project on display in the front window of his shop. It was a 7 cylinder radial engine that was about 18" in diameter. It was a work of art and actually ran. He had built it as a student while in germany and made everything in it including the carburetor. It's really marvelous to see such skill and dedication in an individual.
