Can anyone tell me where i can find some classes to teach me to operate a manual lathe and possible a milling machine? I am in the Houston Texas area and am not having any luck finding any classes at any of the colleges.

Check with your local school system about Continuing Adult Education classes. Also, is there not a Trade School in your area that would offer fundamental classes? If all else fails, buy several old books on machining and read, read, read! Check the book list of Tee Publications.

Check out the "Home Metal Shop Club" in Houston. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of the month.
