Wow Henry!  Beautiful detail, perfect selection of materials and great lighting...very impressive.  Is the bench top a photograph in the background?

What a great rendering Henry! I used one like that when I was a kid. It was pretty old even then. It didn't have a fancy level like yours though. Would've been a handy feature. :) Again, very nice render.

Glad y'all like it. Kinda like it myself ;-)

Bob: I just about never keep track of the time spent on a TCad project. This one did take quite a few hours, and more of those hours were spent on creating and tweaking materials than on modeling the parts.

Garry: The bench top is entirely a TurboCAD creation, consisting of alternating boards that have just slightly different materials. Both use "Wrapped filtered image" Pattern and "Wrapped height map" Texture. FYI (and for anybody who'd like to use them), the attached "Dark_Softwood_Horiz_Smls_Grayscalet.bmp" was used for the Patterns and "SoftwoodDentedHorizSmlsHgtMap.bmp" was used for the Textures. (The height map is a combination of a massaged version of the Pattern image plus an overlaid layer made from a retouched screenshot of a TCad 3D Box with a "Casting" Texture.)

Marvelous, Henry. I think I had my first industrial accident with a similar one about 36~38 years ago. (Was ship-building in Grandads shed)

Henry,

Thank you for sharing the bmp files for the timber, I'll go and have a play with them, the effect is really top quality.

Are the knurls near the pinion a extrusion or a wrap

All knurls are "Wrapped height map" Textures. Notice that the knurls on the chuck are much shallower than all the others. That's the way it is in the real article.
