  • Fantastic Lathe Restoration Series

    I'm not sure what it is about this German fellow, but I absolutely enjoy his production value and entertainment. He is currently taking a Schaublin 125 CNC and converting it to modern controls. But for those not CNC-inclinded, there is plenty of good stuff on the mechanical side of things.

    That's a New Zealand accent, so either he's a Kiwi or he's been taught English by one.

      Did he say "EH" even once? I think he is a Mainlander but north of the Waitaki.

      I don't think his workshop is in NZ but more than that I cant guess as I couldn't even see one wall socket.

        Since he's looking at a Swiss website and has a Schaublin and a Maho he's likely in Switzerland, Austria or Germany.

          I'm subscribed to his channel. I know he's a Kiwi, but don't think he is in NZ. He had that lathe "shipped in from Europe", if he is in NZ, I would hate to know what the shipping cost him
          I just need one more tool,just one!

            Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned where I thought he was from lol. Truth is, I'm not sure, but I thought he was German from various comments and tidbits. Perhaps not haha.

              He probably works for Lauder airlines (Austria).

                Definitely heard a Kiwi accent but the transport company is Austrian.
