Maker Video

Filed under: Maker — jasony @ 11:22 am

I just discovered an online version of MIT’s “Machining Skills for Prototype Development” course. It’s a 10 part video series (approx 5 hours) that used to be $800, but MIT is offering it for free. Free! The course covers basic machining skills at a very thorough pace.

I’m building a rather complicated prop (well, costume bit) this year that will require some basic machine work (which can be done on my current drill press and band saw). I didn’t really have a handle on how to do it. These vids will save my bacon. What do they say? When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

Sean, this could be useful for our builds.

Thanks MIT!

*UPDATE* I just discovered I can download them all. Yay!
