@NGrimberg - I'm actually not much into the machining end of things, more metal fabrication. But I do have some basic machining skills and smaller machines. When I was starting out I found this guy's site useful: https://littlemachineshop.com
OK I was wondering about that. People I follow have made reference to him but I was only looking at his YouTube vids which seemed pretty sparse. Maybe I didn't read the fine print & that was the re-direct teaser.
