  • What are your favorite machining sites?

    I really enjoy others personal webpages showing their projects, tools, workshops, ideas, drawings, etc. Please share some of yours, as I enjoy looking at the many different views of machining. Here's one of my favorites:

    PS...not the forum sites, I read those already.

      Sportandmiah posted the link: A very nice shop. Other people's shop's fascinate me, kind of an extension of their persona. I will say, that of all the shop photos I've carefully examined, I've never seen a wide angle mirror on a workshop shelf. High crime area?

        For reading enjoyment and learning experience, Frank Ford's site is tops. Next would be the antique forum at PM, and then HSM. This is misleading though. Frank's site grows gradually and so doesn't get hourly visits as do the BBS sites because there's no need. Favorite doesn't translate to traffic. The antique forum is just fascinating - I'm a life long fan of museums and old stuff. Again, low traffic area. My most frequent visits are here because the content change minute by minute and there's sure to be something of interest several times a day.

                Frank Ford's site is exceptional. His well documented ideas have been the inspiration of many of my projects. Thanks, Frank!!

                I also enjoy Bob Warfield's site, www.cnccookbook.com

                  Oh, BTW Frank. Tip 346 is mislabeled.
