Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 8 – G’Day Mate

In this episode Max and Justin take a trip down under, and back to the future, and  talk with John Creasey, an avid home shop machinist from Australia.  As usual the discussion topics vary considerably, but we do talk a bit of machining.  In this episode you’ll find:

  • John and Justin get a little teary eyed over the Queen.  Don’t worry – we don’t break out in God Save the Queen
  • Australian politics: the laws of mathematics are no match for the Australian government!
  • John lets us know he has 2 Myfords.  His first was purchased by his father when he was 16.  Let’s here it for great Dads!
  • Electric cars, VW Vanagons, and taking things apart when we were kids
  • We talk about scouting, ripping out hard drives, and rip apart day
  • Stefan is mentioned numerous times
  • Did Max forget to empty his shop dehumidifier?
  • Arduinos in the home shop: Edu Puertas (stop motion) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdEtDnvVeoqlKzpquM7IsNA and the Arduino lead screw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaBK9teKUaA

All that and much much more.
