I just wasted your bandwidth but I enjoyed every bit of it. Nice vids. How fun it would be to have access to that kind of equipment. Hopefully some true client material will pop in and rave as well.

Beautiful video, but it kept buffering on me all the way through, and I am on just an average DSL connection. Anyone with dial up or a slow connection will give up on it, unless they have some patience.

I can't watch it because im on dial up --- but the title cracks me up,,,

I will say this, Glacern looks to be making a serious attempt at very high quality stuff at a reasonable price and I will keep them in mind when Im looking for tool additions...

Very nice video. The quality is excellent. I am on a satellite connection and was able to watch the video with no interruptions or buffering. I am limited to 400MB/day so I will limit myself to one chapter per day.

Looking forward to more!!

Possibly the best machine related videos Ive ever seen ..

i watched most on the site .

puts the discovery channel to shame .

"how it;s made" can now take a back seat

makes machining look like an art form

very well done, edited and produced.

fantastic close ups and coordinated music ..

they guy who made those vids should get an Oscar .

I could watch them all day.

all the best.markj

I liked the videos as well. On a side note, I'm on DSL and didn't have any trouble with it buffering while watching.

Excellent introductory video, I agree with A.K., they seem to be operating their business in the same HQ as their video.
Got my eye on several of their cutters, won't be long.


Latex gloves, anyone here use them while machining :D

I agree. Great job on the videos. If you don't mind, I'm going to show them to my machining class.

Edit, BTW, "Crash" course may not be the best choice of words :D

I used to until Evan told me about turning using heavy mineral oil, now I don't use gloves at all but I do keep tweezers close by.:D

Extremely well done videos, very professional. I wish I could afford to order a few indexable end mills and inserts. It will have to wait until next year though.

Very, very nice. I have a high speed land line and had no buffering issues. I too look foreward to more of these professional quality videos.----Brian

The videos are very well done. I liked that they were in HD to. I was able to Watch them on my 42" Plasma with no problems. I will also say your website is very beautiful. Easy to navigate, Easy to read and lots and lots of eye candy!

No problem here on DSL. In fact, seemed faster and smoother than most I see.

The videos are very well done and concisely presented. Look forward to more.

Browsing around thru the rest of the site I did notice a slight problem, e.g. the product info for the vises: the first few chars of the verbiage is cut off by the left margin of the box. In some cases significant info is lost for the reader.

IE. But I don't know the version.

How do I determine that? I poked around some, but saw no version #.
Apparently not poking in the right place.

Ok, I think I found it: 7.0.5730.13

Hey, same as Mark's. Small world isn't it. :)

What make is the variable speed conventional mill shown in your video?
I don't recall seeing one like it before.

Very nice work on the videos!

I much preferred their other videos of gratuitously making fancy parts on the Mori Seki.

Hi Rex,

That's our own prototype 10x54 bed mill that's been in the works for quite some time. Official release will be sometime in 2010, but the machine can be special ordered now. You can email us at gmt@glacern.com or send us a PM if you're interested.

What is the purpose of turning on the mill when using a center finder to locate a small hole? I didn't know you were supposed to do that.

its a special co-ax one that is meant and built for the purpose ..

has arm on the side for you to hold .

the other types you have to crank your head round...and turn it by hand.

will find one of those one day in the car boots ..the only way im getting one cheap.

No, not the co-ax. The simple mechanical one, with the cone shape pointing down that they compare to an edge finder. It's right after the 3D sensor, and before the Z-Height setter.

I just plunk mine down in the hole and move the table until I can't see any offset (or feel any, if I'm really trying to be precise). Does it work better/easier if it is spinning?

This is my new favorite place to watch machining videos. I really enjoyed the new ones on work holding and work locating. The latter (Crash Course - Chapter5 (http://www.glacern.com/index.php?page=video_index&video=1&video_name=crash_course_mill_05)) answered a lot of my questions that I've been trying to figure out for awhile all in one video. Keep them coming!
