Now that is cool. Coming from a dimensional machining background including manual, CNC and all aspects of QC/QA pertaining to it I can see zillions of uses for such technology.

Put another way, the stamping end of the industry might watch their backs with this on the market!

I'm wondering, will it work on elected representatives?

Wow, I'd of loved to be there when the engineer had THAT epiphany.

My dad showed me how to do this 40 years ago.

If I had the faintest idea what happened, I'd have something to say.

That's amazing. But I would like a closer look at HOW that drill works.

Chris - watching this was just amazing. But is it any faster that other means? During college I worked in a machine shop for a while and I have no idea.

TF - are you on LinkedIn? I swear I saw your photo.

Andy - perhaps an angel wearing welding goggles?

McG - is anyone else doing it? If the technique is that old I wonder why it took the Chinese that long to steal it.

sig94 said...

WoFat - as usual, wise words.

Ralph - apparently the drill withdraws at the corner and comes down and the steel goes round and round oh oh ohoh oho and it...
