As we talked about last year, YouTube has been a boon to many machinists (and people who want to learn machining). There are thousands of videos that walk you through processes ranging from Stereolithography to Milling. It might be the best place for a machinist to learn his or her craft.
Last year we selected NYCCNC, This Old Tony, Oxtoolco, and Clickspring. This year, we have picked out four more channels that will inform and entertain you on your journey to becoming an expert machinist.
