    Wow!!!!! Myself and thousands of others have learned & will continue to learn from him. Where's your youtube channel so we can learn from the real master?

    He has the best machine shop tips on you tube that I have found. You know he is limited by trying to video
    and teach at the same time. I find him a wealth of real knowledge. If we only knew what he has forgot we would
    be ahead of the game.

    I have to tell you, I have had several shop teachers in my time and they knew their *****. I have a tremendous amount of respect for each one. I think Mr. Pete is doing a great service for those wanting to learn the trade. I think instead of putting him down we should give him a hand. His payment is how much?? Some video sales?? He is doing it because he wants too!

    Mr Pete may go as Tubalcain on youtube. But, he is not the Tubalcain you link to on wiki.

    If you watch the video, he (Mr. Pete) explains. Both men took their name from a character in the Christian Bible, a man who was purportedly the first metalworker.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tubal-cain

    He is pretty clear he is not the the same Tubalcain that wrote in Model Engineer, and who is more well known.

    I have watched most, if not all his videos. All are good, some are great. I especially like is video series on grinding lathe tools, and I always send it to people asking about how to grind.

    I don't think he used the name to steal same name recognition from T. D. Walshaw. He mentions the name in early videos. Tubal Cain is from the Bible. I take him at his word that that is why he uses it.

    Mr Pete did not steal his name. In one of his videos he talks about where he gets the nickname. Tubalcain is mentioned in the bible in Genesis 4:22 as a "forger of all things iron or bronze". In effect, the oldest iron monger known.

    I can't remember if he addresses the other Tubalcain (T. D. Walshaw) in his video, or if it was posted in the comments but I am pretty sure he distinguishes himself from the other gentlemen.

    I agree that he is a great teacher. I would not agree that he doesn't know ****. You must put this into perspective, he taught High school shop, where he was lucky enough to get "the kids" (as he always refers to them as) attention for 2 seconds to teach them something. As a beginner myself I find his videos invaluable to inspiring me to jump right in and try this stuff out. He may have to gloss over certain inaccuracies to hold peoples attention.

    I also agree, his voice is eerily soothing. He could have gone into radio broadcasting.

    frank, he's not teaching how to build a rocket ship. what he is showing is how he would do it. . . i find it interesting and some of his ways are the same thing i have done for years. . . . .

    And he is very much alive, unlike the other Tubalcain.
    His YouTube id is mrpete222

    My other mentor is KEF791, Keith of Turnwright Machine Works. I cannot refrain from watching every single one of his videos.
    His approach is different; he is an active professional who takes the time to film many interesting jobs. I have learned SO MUCH! :tiphat: "jawdrop: :worship:

    I've learned a lot by watching him. I think he fielded a question about the two Tubal Cains in one of the videos. There are not many instructors doing these demonstrations and I'm thankful he is putting the time and energy into this, rather than building models that only a few people will ever see.

    This thread has bothered me a tad. I see it like this and ask it as a question.

    If there are 10 people in a discussion and 9 are of the same opinion is not the 10th person entitled to his or hers? I believe this is what makes the world rotate.

    Please provide that link. I'm not really a u-tube fan, but I'll watch a video now and then.

    As for the initial topic - what seems like sloppiness or half-a$$edness (yes I made that word up. I can do that.) may just be decades of experience. My grandfather was a carpenter and by the time he retired he had calibrated eyeballs that could tell you if something on the other side of the room was 1/32 or 3/64 longer than it should be. I'd expect someone who's been machining for so long would also develop a "feel" for things that were done day after day and would instinctively know just how much more to nudge this or feed that without breaking out the laser micrometers.

    Yeah, like Joe_M just said- experience teaches the finesse of workshop practices. After doing an operation for decades, he knows exactly how thick that tape was- and how much to compensate for it. Watch closely, and you will too.

    Yes again, But I and almost all the others felt they needed to defend Mr.Pete. I think the 10th guy was a bit brash & mean spirited about the whole thing. But I won't hold that against him.

    The guy is freely & unselfishly giving his years of experience to anybody who chooses to gain from it, Why would anybody want to bash a man for that? If you don't like his style or think you can do better you should give it a shot but not just badmouth him.

    I hope this thread does not end up getting out of hand & locked as there are many people who do not know of him yet and should get the opportunity to.

    Being entitled to an opinion is one thing, denigrating and making disparaging remarks is quite another. I hardly see how that can be constructive.
