  1. How does the machine know the right timing to start? This is amazing

  2. Why do I feel like this is going to cost the Department of Defense about $350?

  3. *Ok, it has to be done now*

    *Alright, that had to be the last one*

    *Ok ok ok, that was the last one for sure*

  4. I’m not an expert on CNC machining but isn’t it usually considered a bad thing to have such long shavings?

  5. How long is this gif? Have I seen it multiple times?

  6. I feel like the cutter is waiting for the perfect time to jump in, like a jump rope.

  7. Down, and another one down, another one bites the dust! Hey, gonna get you too, another one bites the dust!

  8. Those are really aggressive cuts. . .

  9. Those are some hefty passes; that swarf is *thicc*

  11. Wear gloves when you flip this piece around or remove it. You will melt off your fingerprints otherwise. They came back eventually.

  12. Working with a lathe is super satisfying. I built a gearbox for a machine design class and got to turn the shafts down

  13. Man…I didn’t know making a screw was this labor intensive

  14. They really go through a lot of effort to make sure that they’ve created the perfect long spiral twist.

  15. Wow. This one really did keep on giving

    This is quite entertaining I could watch it for hours

  19. … and scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7!

  20. The sheer precision!!

  21. Please i need this with sound.

  22. Try to focus on one of the ridges slowly moving left instead of the cutter, almost like focusing on an overhead fan blade, looks cool when it starts cutting.

  23. Oh thank god it reset. I could have sworn it wasn’t looped, but, I wasn’t sure.

  24. If dj Khaled worked as a machine engineer

  25. Smells like cancer.
