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 toys..so 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.
