    Must have been Sunday. I didn’t see anyone working.
    Quite a shop. Thanks for sharing.

    I thought it was interesting that they still use old fashioned methods over lasers saying lasers are not as accurate. I have a similar sense of that as well. I think for a lot of tool applications, lasers are overrated.

    My Kapex has what I believe is a pretty decent laser set up, but I’ve found I only use it for when extreme accuracy is not essential. When I need to get a cut spot on, I still use my eyes alone instead to cut on a hairline or the scratch from a marking gauge.

    Now that’s a serious shop. Wow.

    Thanks for sharing. That is a very impressive shop. Good to see the rebuilding service they provide for their customers.

    That is a great video, I did not realize this company existed only about 40 miles from me. Really neat equipment and methods. I will have to look them up sometime.

    Thanks for the video. That shop is very nice, wish I could have enough money to set something similar up.

    Small shop compared to the ones I worked in. I ran a lathe the size of that one in the start of the video. It was the smallest production lathe in the shop

    Great video. Tons of stuff I have never seen before and really interesting. If i was in a shop like that I would need one of you BTP members to show me the ropes and would have a blast.

    I thought it was cool they said they used fish line and a plumb bob to setup the bandsaw and that they tried using lasers but it just wasn’t the same

    There stuff is rock solid and meant to run 24/7…amazing machines. I have used the jointer and planer and they were among the best machines I have ever powered up. The jointer had a ships wheel to raise and lower the bed and it was super smooth and accurate. Zero vibration too. If I had the space I would love to invest in some of this equipment.

    First I’ve heard of the brand, looks solid. But how do they make the cast parts though, contracted out?

    I didnt connect the dots until recently, and I really want to check it out sometimes.

    I am pleasantly surprised to see some of the deals for northfield stuff that comes up on CL here in the Twin Cities every now and then.
