Turn Wright Machine Works videos from Machinist Keith Fenner

Check out the Turn Wright Machine Works videos from Machinist Keith Fenner. Thanks for this tip from Alex Moffat, who shared the following:

I think you might be interested in this guy in the context of the maker movement. He’s not a new style maker but what you might describe as an “old style” machinist. What I find most interesting about any and all of his videos is his combination of incredible skill, really pretty impressive video presence and the way he’s able to pitch the level of explanation of what he’s doing appropriately between people like me who might be able to identify a lathe and experts. Watching Keith explaining how to cut threads on a lathe, or seeing him weld, or listen to his explanation of how he restored his upright drill, gives you a new appreciation for how
small batch physical objects are actually build. Really, worth watching.

Yeah, these are great! Thanks Alex!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
