Our pal Jeri Ellsworth turned us on to this awesome series of machine shop vids, done by “tubalcain” (aka mrpete222), a retired shop teacher from Illinois. It does my heart good to think of someone with this kind of technical expertise and years of practical wisdom, who’s already “retired,” creating such great educational videos and sharing them with the webbed world.

    He sounds like a guy that really loves his work. When I was in shop classes in high school, I never experienced that kind of enthusiasm. Just goes to show you. If you know how to make stuff, retirement just means you have more time to do what you love.

    I love this guy. His enthusiasm is great and I’ve already benefited from watching some of his videos. I’m bookmarking his Youtube channel for sure.

    I appreciate people like him who take time to share their knowledge with the rest of us.

    I’ve recently started building a plane in my basement and resources like this are incredible. I’ve also benefited from EAA’s “Hints for Homebuilders” video series at: http://www.eaavideo.org/channel.aspx?ch=ch_hints

    They have hundreds of videos on a wide range of topics from electrical wiring to working with composites to sheet metal and wood.

    Thanks for sharing Mr. Pete222′s channel with us.

    Now all I have to do is convince my wife that driving an old jalopy gives me license to purchase a Bridgeport.
