Last winter I lost my engineer's iron ring.  My fingers shrink in the cold, and I believe it fell off as I removed a pair of gloves.  I could have gone back to the university for a replacement, but I felt it more fitting that I make my own.  After many months of delay, here is the result.  I machined it from a 1" bar of steel, first by turning on a lathe and then by milling with a precision rotary table.  This is as shiny as it will ever look -- the rust will come soon, as is right and proper.
