    I couldn't agree more: Digital/online magazines are simply not the same experience as the real thing. And as much time as I spend on my computer, I've never been able to enjoy using it for actual...

    Unfortunately, we don't have an index. We don't even have a complete collection of the magazines.

    About 11 years ago (before I was here), our office was flooded by a broken water main that was so...

    I'm going to recommend that you also post this question at WeldingWeb.com, which is run by Welding Magazine -- closely affiliated with American Machinist.

    Gentleman,
    Let's keep the conversation relevant to the original post; let's keep it civil; and let's keep it substantive. Thank you.

    That's amazing. It almost looked like a joke.

    The low cost of labor in China is clearly and issue,and while I didn't see anything like this, I did see plenty of examples where automation was...

    Ries,
    Thanks for the reply. I really do see the nuance of your point, and I generally agree with you.

    It's a great perspective. I don't believe Bruce has said or implied that Taiwan's machine tools are better than ours -- but rather that Taiwan's machine tools are becoming increasingly sophisticated...

    LeeDawg,
