How to: Using a Lathe and/or Mill

Is anyone aware of any good DVDs or VHS tapes on the subject of using Lathes and/or Mills?

You can't do any better than visual demonstrations, and there doesn't seem to be much out there on these subjects.

(And taking a class/course is *not* an option for me).

Thanks a lot.

We used the AGI tapes as instructional material in the machining classes I taught. Students could check out and watch at home, and then apply in the lab.

Prices seem a little high, but there is a lot of material compared to the less expensive tape sets. I understand there are web sites that will rent you the tapes and you might check to see if you can obtain on interlibrary loan.

Google this group for technical rentals. Someone was offering a rental by mail deal in the last year or two.
