tool porn

Okay, to counter the porn post, how about some tool porn: YouTube video of 10 minutes of a 5 axis milling machine cutting a V8 engine block from solid stock. Complete with cheesey porn-like soundtrack. Via ToolMonger.

And because we like to send you straight to the original source for our porn, the English Matsuura home page, and the 5 axis machining subsection of their pages.

50 years ago, on might have anticipated that this would be presented by Cincinnati Millacron Company. It's amazing how many people actually believe that the US is still a force to be reckoned with (beyond military brutishness)
