    Greetings Mr. Pete, I am gratified to see that you are educating a new
    generation of machinists.
    The continuing outsourcing of this trade is very detrimental to the
    continued growth of our nation and destroying the manufacturing base.
    Without the knoledge that people like you are sharing, this trade may be
    lost forever.
    Thank you for providing these videos, not only are they informative, I, for
    one, find them most interesting.

    Thank you MrPete! Your videos have saved me a ton of time in learning and

    Thanks so very much for your videos. You are an inspiration to any one
    wanting to be educated in machine work. Keep the coming! I dont think you
    will ever run out of subject matter as this field is so broad and diverse.
    I took Machine Shop in high school about 44 years ago and loved it but
    couldnt make a living at it in this area. I have just retired and bought a
    10″ and a 15″ lathe and am learning so much from you and refreshing up on
    trade practice now.

    I enjoy all your videos, and this one was especially helpful. After reading
    a lot about tool grinding, I was still fuzzy until seeing your
    demonstration with the big model. Thanks!

    Not the same angle for Metric as Imperial: Metric is 60 degrees included
    angle, as opposed to 55 degrees Imperial.

    So is the top rake needed if you aren’t using the angled tool bit holder
    and how many degrees are the left and right sides? Thanks.
