It’s been more than a month since our last episode where we said we would try to record an episode 2 times a month. To make up for it we snagged Stefan Gotteswinter for an interview. Thankfully he hung around long enough to answer our questions and didn’t seem to be too put off by our antics. In this episode
- Stefan is looking at Onshape.
- Max geeks out over Wine for Linux (sorry) and thinks you can easily run Autodesk’s Fusion in Linux.
- Max gets a Hemingway kit, the Trent Pinion Mill, and now he has to machine it!
- Chinese machine tools really are not that good, but are great for home shop machinists!
- Stefan suggests to think of most imported machine tools as casting kits.
- How to get banned in less than 5 minutes on Practical Machinist.
- Germans have a lot of home shop machinists, who mostly use CNC. Germans and their tech!
- Stefan uses carbide in the shop. We’ll make him listen to our first episode again before we invite him back on.
- Stefan would be happy on a desert island with a Deckel FP1… and all the accessories. Who wouldn’t?
- Max happens to think German is an eloquent language.
- How could you interview a German and not ask about beer?
Plus a whole lot more. We managed to trim 10 minutes off this time to get our 1 hour podcast down in 1 hour and 20 minutes!
