    Robin Renzetti is anything BUT beginner.

    As much as I hate to admit it, Titan's stuff is probably the best option from a purely educational standpoint as far as CNC goes.
    The manual guys don't really teach. They more or less share. How much you teach yourself watching them is all up to your learning aptitude.
    I have learned tons about manual machining watching Tom, Kieth, and Adam. Esp. Tom. He probably leans more towards teaching than most.
    This Old Tony "teaches" in his own special way. But, he is so thorough, it is very time consuming.
    And, he not necessarily machining. I would say he is more aligned towards engineering, and dabbles in machining. (I really like watching his channel)
    Peter Stanton (Edge Precision) is hands down the best machining channel on Youtube!

    Best of luck to your guy Dave! I hope he sticks with it.

    I would think 5 minutes of 1 on 1 training from you would be worth more than the entirety of YouTube.

    You might be better served to hook the lad with some type of project that incidentally requires using machine tools. Building go karts or those stupid spinner things or whatever kids are into these days

    DO NOT MAKE SPINNERS! Stupidest thing I have ever seen in my life! Fidget toys?! WTF?! Get up off your ass and do something constructive!
    Sorry for the tirade. But, those damn things make me sick!

    I agree they're dumb but I caved and made this with my daughter when the craze hit here. Her design, she wanted the heaviest possible Any good YouTube vids/series/channels for a kid starting out in machining?. She's doing dioramas now- the pencil is about 1/2" long.

    Just think about how you would feel about them if you were a social worker at a school during that brief span when they were everywhere, like my wife. Claims that they "boost focus" are wildly exaggerated, to say the least. in 99% of cases it's just another source of distraction...

    That being said, I agree that what's probably better than any video is a simple hands-on project. When I was just a little guy (like maybe 6 or so) I saw my old man pouring concrete in the back yard for something or other. Inspired by the way that he was able to make stuff take a shape that he wanted, I immediately went to work designing canoes, airplanes, etc. made with concrete. If seeing and doing a project that takes a lump of metal and transforms it into something useful doesn't catch "the spark" then maybe it's not meant to be after all.

    I think you will enjoy all the mentioned you tube fellows they are all great. Tubal Caine is probably the best for someone starting out because I believe his background is that he did teach young people in school back in the day. He is down to earth and very sharp. He is down to earth and has a friendly non egotistical nature.

    With a book, you can immeditely re-read a sentence or passage that wasn't clear at the first review. Skipping ahead, then back a few pages is easy, it's more of a pain with vids.

    Then we get to recommendations for reading. Not much help there, what I had is long gone. But there are threads here on "new machinist reading materials", in fact there's one active at the moment: Beginner looking to start metal turning
    it's best to find an old fart who will take you under his wing..........
