      While at the NAMES Show Jerry Keifer showed me his finished model of his Harley. This model is perfect in every detail. The engine starts by the kick start and runs. Even the tire valves to fill with air work. Jerry demonstrates the Sherline machines at the show and is just an unbelievable machinist.

      He has a microscope setup for his lathe to make the super tiny parts like the threaded spokes and tightening nuts for them.

    Zowie !! That's some heavy duty machining there.

    It takes waay more than just the tools. A guy like this could do incredible things with an ex-acto blade
    and sand 1/8th Running Knucklehead. paper. More than I could with all his tools.
