I thought this was a great video. Very simple, fun look into a simple machining job.

For a second there, I was expecting to see somebody trying to spline an axle using a hydraulic press as an arbor press or shaper.

Cool video, but for me, like so many other videos out there, there's so much wasted time. That is, watching the lathe take a pass, watching the guy do the programming, etc. The same video could be edited to a third that length and lose nothing by way of detail.

And I'm still not sure I like the head-mounted camera for anything that isn't an action scene (IE, playing paintball, riding a mountain bike, etc.) It's interesting, and no, it doesn't make me "seasick" or anything, but the constantly-changing viewpoint, and occasional shaking (like while he's cranking the carriage) get annoying.

Still, cool video.

Doc.

There's a lot of people that follow them that might not have been interested in machining otherwise. Now they're stuck in that end of youtube and will never be able to get AvE and this old tony out of their recommended videos! MWAHAHA!

... Although AvE is pretty entertaining, as is BigClive. (mostly because they have zero compunctions to ripping it to bits to see how it works, and without caring if it still works once/if it's put back together again.)

Fair warning, the former is pretty crude, humor wise, but I expect this crowd already knew that.
