1. If I could star over again

I’d love to be a mechanical engineer or machinist.

2. It's not as glamorous as you would think.

Been in the trade for over 30 years.
It's cool work, it's fun work and it's challenging work but there's definetly some drawbacks in the health department.

3. Pretty cool trick with the 4 jaw

Personally I think it's a lot easier on the mill.

5. I never would have thought of that 4 jaw approach.

7. Me either

Neat trick, but seems like a lot of extra work

6. The boring bar thing worked very well. Another way on the mill would be to use a rotary table...

...with a 4-jaw lathe chuck. That's probably what I would do because I don't have a very good boring head.

8. I've done the boring head thing once or twice

Have even cut OD threads that way in a CNC mill.
That guy called it backboring, that's not back boring.

10. Still have to set it up

And something like that I would just program it at the machine.
It's quicker and easier.
