I have seen that site before and have it bookmarked. I just get to goofing off and never get back to his site.
Ford does posts/or has posted on the home shop machinist site.

Frank Ford has a great site there. I've gotten more than a few ideas from him.

Ford said in one of his projects that he was just learning to use a lathe. Wonder if he's learned how, yet.
