In a follow-up to September’s Metal Working theme, for November, we’ll be delving deeper into machining tools: lathes, cutters, drill presses, metal CNC machines/laser cutters. We’re bringing Hackett back to continue to explore his lo-tek take on metal, we’ll have some introductions to basic machining tools, some posts from resident Make: Labs’ metalman Dan Spangler, more Tubalcain tutorial videos, and more.

As usual, we’d love to hear about what you’d like to see us cover during the month. Let us know in the comments and we’ll see what we can do.
