  1. Awesome I have been waiting in excited anticipation since Adam let the cat out of the bag last weekend. Listening to the pod cast is like How I watch Game Of Thrones, in between every episode I go back to the start and roll straight in to the new episode. I always find a new gem I missed or forgot.


  2. I have been following Abom since the Practical Machinists days when the Kerns boring mill was outside his dads shop covered with a blue tarp! You Tube has become my Saturday night TV, starting with SnS. Adams videos are always interesting and never tedious.


  3. I really enjoy these podcast my only complain is can we get them more often? Thanks these are really great for someone just starting out.


  4. I learned alot today. Just found you guys on here, after watching a couple Utube vids. Thank you for keeping this out here. I really needed to hear the hobby vs make it a biz part. I really do appreciate it.


  5. 1800 RPM = 60Hz (4 pole) AC power. HERTZ X SEC/MIN X 2 (N & S Poles)/ # of Poles = speed.
    (60 Hz X 60 sec. X 2)/4 = 1800 RPM N. America
    (50 Hz X 60 sec. X 2)/4 = 1500 RPM Europe
