This thread is for pictures of items, objects or concepts that bring to mind the concept of precision ...

I'll start with some obvious candidates (lens and watch) and look for others to jump in and add to this thread:

GF1 and 50mm Nikkor f1.2 with M2 extension ring
F4
ISO 400
1/10th second

Got at the perfect location

The post for this thread arrived while I was installing a server at a tool manufacturing plant... good karma.

Did this pretty quickly while the X Serv loaded.

Thanks for looking, Alan

This is my favourite Genre Stephen, thanks for the tip.

This is the balance arrangement on one of my low temp hot air engines. I made this without any plans and had the concept taken from a set of balance scales. It works pretty good and allows the engine to run on relatively low temp. (eg, internet modem)

PS. Allan, you may know what I've used to make the flywheel.

G1/w Nikkor 55f3.5 oldy auto Nippon

Here is a shot with the G1 and Micro 55f3.5 Micro. Still the sharpest of the Micros for Close up range from 1:10 to 1:1.
Just a joy to use on the G1 handles really well , light , east to focus, very reasonable on the used market. Sold my 55 2.8 ais as this one is superior by far in this range. Only cavet is this series is only for close up's not much good for other motif's. This is a jpg basic quality.:smile:
Thanks Dennis.
Ps. this second version is only single coated!!!. Still the best.

This has little to do with photography, but rather a photo of the tripod head I have just put together out of stuff I found in the trash. I finished the mounting hardware today.
