There is another interesting post over at The Steampunk Workshop, this time about Electrolytic machining of brass. The results are varied, but very promising. With a little more experimenting, this could be a viable DIY alternative to hand cutting, CNC, EDM or lasers. – Link

    I bought an ebook a while back on building your own electrical discharge milling machine, for cheap. Upon seeing this, I’ll have to build one and see if I can have some fun.

    oh, that’s completely different from the EDM machine I’ve got plans for. I think the method in the link would be better for fabricating than reproduction but still something to think about.
