    "Peeling feeling" net trend, in tools - videos

    I've been largely ignoring the net's favorite new fetish: peeling videos. I guess I lumped them in with zit popping videos and such, or maybe a kind of visual ASMR. Videos of older peels ("OMG, I had no idea I was supposed to peel that plastic layer off 30 years ago; I'll do it right now!") are also analogous to the videos of long-sitting vehicles being started for the first time in years. There are some keepers though.

    No need to throw away that bucket:




    Nice floor stripping vid; of course floors rarely peel this nicely:




    And this flawlessly-looped painting tape peel:

    I thought I was over these up-close machining videos, that I had grown as a person and matured into an upstanding citizen of the web, enough such that I didn't have to watch them anymore.

    I never tire of brute force judiciously applied to a sharp object slicing through steel or other materials leaving near perfect scrolls of shavings

    This is half of why I watch Adam Booth's or Steve Summers' shaper episodes, it is hypnotic watching them. This looks like a large planer, though.

    Yep, fair-sized...for a garage.
    TINY compared to "Niles Heavy Duty Planer Mill. Combines single point [or form tools] tooling on one ram and conventional 50 NM taper milling, 15-480 rpm on second ram, both mounted on cross rail, and 2 side heads attached at either column. The table measurements; 15' wide x 36' long, with 14' under the rail! A planer should reach 100%+ of it's table real estate; meaning the footprint was occupied by not less than 72' of guideways." But I only got to admire it, stationary after shutdown of Long Beach (CA) Naval Shipyard, awaiting it's fate. I'm positive it was scrapped.
    In my very first shop, primarily doing mold work, ran everything except horizontal Lucas boring mill. Instead, one pet was a 8' x 40' Gray planer. Planers are great, especially press brake dies, tapered spars, molds like garage door seals, flatting weldments...
    Mainly Joseph Whitworth is owed for his breakthroughs in mechanics to get planers effective. That's different than efficient, planing is still kind of special.

    Just shows you why one needs to have a shaper, especially at four foot travel.

    All of us like single point cutting; generation of proper chips and surface finish.
    The hypnotic magic of lathes, shapers and planers? Simple. Comes from being able to see the action occur, even at 24 frames a second.

    If I had any eye teeth I'd give them for a planer, sometimes the shaper just isn't big enough.
    I have a folder on my computer called 'Machine Porn' and if I get annoyed about something 10 minutes watching metal peeling makes me feel good.
