Andrew's insight:

My thoughts: I thought this article was interesting. I enjoyed the brief background on the machining process, followed by the need more more efficient machines. Also the concept of being able to combine multiple machines together is an appealing one. My only fear with this concept is that it would greatly interfer with production if for whatever the reason one broke. Because then multiple process' would be brought to a halt.

My thoughts: As a limit testing machinist I quite enjoyed this article even if it wasnt about machining. The concept of playing around with what you have till it breaks just to see what it can do has always appealed to me. Similiar to the welds they make in this article and smash. I too have attempted to take copious amounts of steel off with HSS on a lathe just to see the tool snap as to find the limit I could push it to the next time.
