  • Basic Machine Shop Videos

    I think with all the information out there today and the number of highly knowledgeable home shop machinist there are we often forget that the new guy probably doesn't know the basics. The video posted by flylo made me think of these.

    I seem to recall the original series was produce out of MIT and there were more videos, but I could have misrecalled. In just about every video there is one or two things I disagree with or think isn't quite right, but there is a lot of great basic getting started beginner information in these. There is nothing that moves me to start trash talking in the comments.

    They are relatively long (30-40 minutes), but they are in my opinion a good basic survey of many manual machine operations.
    *** I always wanted a welding stinger that looked like the north end of a south bound chicken. Often my welds look like somebody pointed the wrong end of a chicken at the joint and squeezed until something came out. Might as well look the part.
