    I have available a complete metal working shop (miller, lathe, power saws, drill press with ALL the asseories for each) and I can not find any sort of night school to be more effective with the equipment. It is not the basic equipment, but how to properly sharpen cutting tools, what materials for what, etc...

    I always had a wood working shop which I love dearly but would like to gain enough skills in metal work also.

    My Dad was one of the best machinists around, working for Indy 500 cars, space shuttle, lunar lander plus lots of medical devices being designed by MIT students... Damn I wish I talked to him more...

    Heard this story on the radio today about the need for people with CNC skills:
