    Lathe Video Series

    This dude makes some clever tools and does some really creative things with his lathe. Definitely getting the most out of it.

    The series is a couple of hours but you can skim through much of it.

    I've been watching his stuff off and on for a few months,

    The thing I like about him is that you get to see everything involved in the process including mistakes or project direction changes.

    I'm glad he's making videos like that, most people have no idea how much time goes into a project when they take something to be fixed. It can be hours before he ever turns the machine on.

    Guy seems pretty humble as well, working his job day after day.
    He knows theres other ways to do things but he's doing it his way.

    good stuff.

    Joel,

    thanks for posting that link. I really like that guys delivery and teaching style. He's a natural. Only watched one video so far but I already learned a thing or two. Great stuff.

    I like the fact that he was beveling the edges of the tube as well as facing the end without moving the post. I guess I need to get some different insert holders

    A right turn 45 chamfer tool will chamfer ID/OD and face ends. I like a straight 45 insert in a tool holder run on the front of the post. If you don't have a 45 tool, you can always angle a tool to achieve the OD chamfer and use your compound to get the ID.

    I found his youtube channel while looking for some brazing video, tons of great fabrication video's on his channel.

    His wood stove heat treating was neat. Hell of a fire.

    I guess my posted was missing some info.

    I found the this youtube channel about a month ago while looking for brazing videos. I ended up watching 10-15 of his video's on a number of different projects. The heat treating with a wood stove I found particularly unique.
