Home Shop Machinists Podcast – Episode 14 – Phillipsed

When one Phillips isn’t enough.  Recorded in between years as Stefan would say, Max invites his brother Thayer and his father Fred on to join in an end of year discussion with our new semi regular co-host Stefan Gotteswinter!  In this episode we talk about:

  • Fred’s shop that Thayer works out of.  Fred has a really nice Rockwell mill (one of our all time home shop favourites) and a Southbend Heavy 13.
  • We talk about gunsmithing in the United States, Germany and Canada
  • Live free or die!
  • CAD and Stefan’s embrace of Autodesk Fusion.
  • Stefan machined some really nice Torx screws using his Deckel pantograph.
  • Justin is busy making Christmas presents.
  • Stefan wants to get a CNC lathe in 2018.
  • Max is hoping to finish his Trent pinion mill.
  • Both Max and Justin are hoping to get back to semi regular posting on Youtube.
  • And finally cars.  Max is hoping to get some German iron.

  1. Excellent. I can’t wait to check it out. I have 24 hours of driving from TN to WY on Monday-Tuesday. I plan to listen to this one and review a bunch of your old ones on the trip.


  2. Nice show, as always! Keep ’em coming! Really glad to hear Stefan is going to be a regular, you three always have nice discussions. How is that livestream with Tom and Robin coming along?


  3. Justin,
    Stefan is was excellent (as usual) and his humor is spot on, Max’s father & brother were equally good, great episode. My favorite line, (I parapharse) ” we will have to listen to the podcast to hear what was said” Don’t do that to me when I am driving you guys!


  4. Well, you said the welders out there would scream…
    Frankly, I’m always happy to hear people are learning welding! I taught it for about 7 years at Rice (which earned me beer money as an undergrad and saved me from grading papers as a grad student).
    Yes, i can confirm there ARE people out there that are skilled at both welding and machining. At least one, that is… me.
    I find welding to be even more of a zen state for me than machining; the world shrinks down to just the pool. Dark lenses help the experience 😉
