Hi Tin,

These training videos very well done,presented and orated in easily understood
for second language folks like me.
Will store into folders for reference. Intend to go thru all to pick new tricks.
Would pass on to another friend who I may be giving away my Sakai Lathe when replacement arrive.

Please keep up the good work. Machinists are about to rarer. There are
some folks who have not done any turning but turned away by fear of the unknown. I once stood by for two solid weeks to teach someone to drill,bore and ream motors pulleys. Plus key-way slotting. Went on to teach further technics like turning ODs and using micrometers. Plus internal boring.
By the six month he was good enough to work as junior machinist.

Wish I could turn back the clock to 1997 with these videos.
Thanks for the videos.

P.S. I got a new teacher. Webbie is teaching me how to get her started and running plus the fine carb tuning.Webbie is running/spinning happily.

Gus,the Happy Boat-Fisherman and Happy Machinist.

Default Broken Links

As an inexperienced machine user I have found this thread very useful and am slowly working my way through it. There are a few broken links but that isn't a problem because even a broken link can give inspiration to search, as a result I found this:-

Which is probably already linked here somewhere. I did 'Technical Drawing' as an exam subject at school (55 years ago!) and those forgotten skills have been useful in understanding the different elevations. So much still to learn and what fun it is. Another heartfelt thanks to all you generous engineers for your tips, plans etc. but above all, your consideration.

Once, I couldn't even spell engimeer, now I'm trying to be one!
