    Default Morore Jig Bore Dan Gelbart Great Shop Tour

    "Here we have a Moore Jig Moore--Most people don't realize what a human achievement this machine is"
    Says the scrapers at Moore wore aluminized aprons to keep body heat from affecting the machine while scraping...

    Multiple references on how you can buy what was really expensive equipment on Ebay for cheap. LOL

    Some really great stuff about a whole bunch of neat machine tools as he tours his shop. No wild way toooooo loud music. Kinda left me wanting more from Dan Gelbart. Looks like this was done quite recently.

    PS. I've run Pratt and Whitney jig bores and Moore jig bores but I've never heard of a Morore jig bore.

    "chocolates and flowers"??? WTF Something left over from your days hustling in the back of the tool room? Besides, Mr. Gelbart's company sold, some say, for a Billion dollars so don't even mention something lame like tickets to see Lady GaGa.

    Very cool guy. I've contacted him a number of times over the years to ask various questions regarding optics/lasers/manufacturing. Always replies in such a gracious and humble manner.
