Colin Usher's Engineering Web Page Colin has an excellent program for performing most of the common model engineering calculations, plus a few extra features - follow the links to the 'Model Engineers' Utilities' & download it - you won't regret it.
GadgetBuilder Interesting site covering many topics - based around tooling & accessories, largely for a 7x12 Minilathe.
A Myford ML7 of my own Based around a Myford ML7, this site & projects are of interest to me, my Advance lathe being a clone of the ML4 - similar size & operation.
The Shed A great website  by Terry Brown (Here in good old Oz), covering: foundry, 9x20 lathe, HM-30 mill-drill & assorted other workshop related stuff.
CNC Cookbook Interesting site that kept me reading for ages - worth a look

Ron & Warren, the men that run this store, must be 2 of the friendliest & most helpful people I've ever met.  I recommend buying from them - Good prices & if they don't have it, they'll either get it for you, or tell you who can help you.

F & J Precision Engineering

If part of a project is too big for my hobby workshop to handle, this is where I'd go to get my machining done (like skimming cylinder heads, general machining etc) - I've always found Kevin to be highly skilled, friendly & helpful, with very good pricing - I have no affiliation with this company, other than as a very satisfied customer, I recommend them to everyone.
