    I agree about the waiting until it is right. Kind of like opening a restaurant when you still dont have the recipes correct. It can put a bad taste (literally) in a customers mouth, and they wont be back. First impressions are critical.

    Thanks for the ideas. Honestly, some of these are above my pay grade even though you did them in your sleep.

    Make sure to relate everything back to the T1 control. LOL! (seriously)

    Unfortunately, I have never seen or touched a T-1 control. I do know there are differences between it and the T-2 series, but I don't know to what extent.

    Well, my friend was editing up the last of the videos and discovered we screwed up and did not record the audio track on one of them. Well, we reshot that video yesterday and also reshot the intro to another one--both with the audio recorder turned on this time.

    My friend also spent half the day yesterday training me on how he runs the editing software using the keyboard shortcuts and other stuff.

    He still needs to do a quick edit on the second demo part video, render it, and upload the video, then my YouTube channel should go live this week.

    Default YouTube channel is now live!

    Well, I got the last video uploaded and turned on the channel. I just have basic stuff on the channel at the moment, but I thought this video was worth posting here. I am machining a sphere and I walk you through how to calculate the sphere endpoints and also how to machine it with two different tools. The rougher is a 55° diamond and the finisher is a 35°diamond. The 55° cannot rough out the complete shape, so I separated the rougher and finisher on separate processes so the 35° cleaned up the extra stock.

    Great job Phil!
    These videos will prove invaluable to those just starting out in the world of Mazatrol and reinforce those who are unsure of themselves.
    I'm self-taught (with heavy guidance from these forums ) and even though I've been running an SQT18 in my shop for the last 7 years, I find it comforting to know I'm doing things the way a pro would.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this all together, you've earned another subscriber.
    Looking forward to your future content.

    Very nicely done Phil! You're a natural in front of the camera and speak clearly and concisely. I've watched all the YT videos I could find on similar topics and agree these is a big need for this type of content, and I'm very much looking forward to learning from someone with your experience and humility!

    I subscribed to your channel but would also like to send a small donation in appreciation for you taking your time to make these quality videos. I'll PM you for the details...

    Mike

    Thanks for the positive feedback!

    I am a very introverted person and getting up in front of the camera like this is a major struggle for me. I get nervous all the time the camera is rolling and I tend to pause talking and clench up my jaw. I end up doing that a LOT in these videos. I'll get better with practice, but no, this is not natural for me at all.

    I relax a little once I turn my back to the camera and just program the machine like I'm training someone standing next to me.

    Thank you for the great videos!
    I am currently self-learning on T32 and T-plus, and although I'm not a newbie cnc machinist, your thorough explanations and seeing some little things - like pressing the two handle buttons simultaneously for a 100 multiplier - are just mind blowing, when you don't have a mentor, and you have to search for every option in a bunch of old manuals with missing pages, written in languages that you don't speak.
    Thank you again, keep up the good work!
