The Many Vices of a Novice Machinist

I am of course aware that puns are the lowest form of humor, although how they got demoted below Adam Sandler movies is a mystery to me. But bear with me, I am learning a whole new language.  So many interesting words in the machine shop.  Knurling, ferrules, wheel dressing...

It's a whole new world really.  So many many big toys...

And puns, so many puns.

The steel post on the end of the lathe is called a "knockout bar".  

Makes me think of a seedy establishment where on Saturday night you might hear "Three Jawed Chuck and the Lathe Dogs" play.
