Mondo Machining: This Video Shows Milling and Turning Processes And We Could Watch It All Day

Know that deal around Christmas time when there’s a channel you can flip on and watch nothing but a burning Yule Log all day? There needs to be a gearhead version of that which would go 365 days a year and simple show machining operations happening. This video is proof of the concept because we guarantee that once you press play, you’ll be as enthralled as we were when we started watching. This is not a long video and it is busted up into sections which show a few different things being worked on. We particularly like the crane hook being finished.

Machining is one of the most important things that mankind has developed over the years. From the making of cannon to the creation of machines like piston engines, turbines, and basically all the other stuff that we look at, touch, and interact with each day, the idea of taking a large piece of metal and making it exactly the size and shape necessary to fit the application makes the modern world possible.

All you have to do is press play below and watch the chips fly. It is relaxing, cool, and impressive. It’s the gearhead’s Yule Log channel at Christmas time…in August!

Press play below to see this ultimately satisfying video showing large scale machining –

    back in the 70’s did high speed milling, grinding, turning with ceramic and cbn tooling to aircraft material. what is new now is quality and speed of machines. rapid traverse on some machines exceeds 3000 inches per minute which equates to 1g of force. they have to bolt down the machines now so they don’t move.

    As a navy machinist i see this everyday, making a couple hundred pounds of chips a day. And yes, i can watch videos like this all day.
