I have watched this guys videos for a while now. He is and older fellow that knows the old ways of machining on lathes and mills. The video group he has done here takes you from adjusting your machine and pieces to making your own jigs and attachments. I am very suprised at how easy he makes this look. Hopefully some of you folks with lathes and mills can take away something from his vids.

He like old tractors Too!


ETA: He goes through alot of info. there are 236 vids ATM. Some of the subjects are, using the sine bar, screw threads, tapers, internal and external threading, machine maintenance, work piece set up. He also explaines how to use the machinery handbook.

Here is a better link that will provide more vid previews.

I've watched some of his videos in the past and really like the way he does things. He talks to you not over you which is a big help.
Thanks for the link.

Thanks Coldone. I just had a few minutes to look at one vid. The fellow seems like a natural teacher. This is a very nice resource to have available.
