    He is NOT Tubal Cain. He has cheekily used (and taken advantage of) the name that was ORIGINALLY used by a British model engineer, Tom Walshaw. Tom contributed many article for Model Engineer Magazine (and possibly Model Engineers Workshop) using the pseudonym Tubal Cain. Mt Pete's use of the name may have deceived others into thinking he is the "real" Tubal Cain.

    Tom Walshaw (aka Tubal Cain) was a leader in his field and he wrote numbers books on metalwork.

    In his intros his "Hello Tubal Cain here..." is not true.

    While familiar with the few good youtube 'video machinists/ engineers', I'm not a subscriber.
    When this detail appeared, went looking for "Tubal Cain". It appears Walshaw's use is first alright; an identity-moniker chosen and modified from Tubalcain, the biblical metal worker. Not different than had Thor or Vulcan been used, just a bit less imposing.
    With Mr. Walshaw's passing in 1998, it's not likely he fielded any content for youtube.

    Thanks once again to Wikipedia. Another reminder to a stand-off with a sociology professor, that it couldn't be cited reference material for compositions like term papers. However, the text he authored [thereby collecting revenue] was.
    Any care to guess who won?
    Sincerely,

    Thank you for the clarification. I bought numerous books of his on the workshop practice series for my son and they definately are in a British context. I also made the same error in assuming Mr Pete and Tubal Cain were the same individual.
