I don't *think* I want to be a machinist, but you never know. I definitely want to learn the skills. I only mentioned the "... and possibly take some pics" part in my original post because I normally carry my camera with me when I am out and about and didn't want anybody to be put off by it. Or at least to give 'em a chance to say "no cameras!"

I have access to tons of pics and a few videos online. I even have a few books like "Machinery's Handbook 27th ed." and "TableTop Machining". A while back I was going to by a small Sherline or Taig Mill and a lathe to dork with. Just never got around to actually buying one. I figured after I learned a bit, I would get a CNC conversion kit and go to town making some cool useless stuff.

The reason I wanted to observe is because pics and videos never really show tool changes, or anybody manually cranking the wheels and stuff. At least not at length or any real detail. So I just wanted to get an idea of what goes on in the setting up the machine, changing tools, and holding the work. etc.

That's all.

man i dont know anyone who will let u take pics, its got to be a mom & pop shop maybe if u give them sum bull about doin a report or school project it will go over better and u can get to see sum of the more cool machines or u can goto a dealer open house, they will have machines running show parts and prolly sum high speed machining operations.......call around fora demo show, or goto Reed/hacolog of Navigation and ask for the shop tour tell em ur doin a project, talk to the HR lady (if ur really goin lemme know i can prolly help u out with that one, i know sum ppl there still)........thats the only place i've seen tour because i was an operator there, other than that i dunno........good luck
