The trouble with stainless steel machining

The difference of malleability between metal alloys can be quit big. Some cuts like butter, others are so stubborn they almost seem to have a mind of their own. One of the more difficult alloys to machine is stainless steel, but even here the problem is more or less pronounced depending of what kind of stainless you choose. If you plan to mill any stainless steel material, you should definitely watch this video by NYC CNC where the choice of stainless alloy, speed, feed and many other factors are carefully explained to help you mill corrosive resistant parts in no time. And if you really want to see how bad it can get, forward the video to 11 minutes and 30 seconds, and you will see a horrible little firework!

Slowing down those tutorials

Video DIY tutorials are great, they can explain methods so much clearer than simple images or text. But they aren’t always perfect. Here at Crafters University, we only collect the most informational and educational DIY videos on the web, but even those can at times be too fast paced for a beginner. In some instances, it may feel like the information is pouring over you like a waterfall, and you just cant keep up. That’s when YouTubes slow motion feature come in handy. Just watch this video from Phrase and learn how to slow down those fast pace moments, making it easier for you to learn! In this particular video a drum set is used, but this trick works for all YouTube videos, especially DIY tutorials.
