Smithy went the distance to show you the differences in all of the cutting tools. Cutting tools quite frankly can piss you off if you choose the wrong ones. They also can be a nightmare if you are not maintaining the ends properly. Machinist can go in depth on each tool due to the daily use which is why we are only scratching the surface. In a few weeks we are going to go in depth to offer more of a glimpse of some of these cutting tools. The lathe is by far one of the strongest and most versatile tools in the shop. Mastering the Lathe gives you abilities aside from welding or cutting and gives the reach of new possibilities to whomever is at the helm.
