Machining, engineering and more is a massively popular thing on video platforms and websites in general these days. Books are going to be their own thing a bit later.
Very much always going to be incomplete but best to have something to start with

Adam Savage's Tested has as good bit of stuff on this too. Also Peter Brown does a lot of stuff too. You might like the one where he makes a hammer out of Adam Savage's book "Every Tool's a Hammer", and Adam's video on it afterwards.

I should do more with this group (had several things lined up for a while now). I do occasionally watch Tested. Some of his stories/Q&A segments are really good actually.
Did we ever find out why his raptor costume build was pulled?

Man, I wish it was easier to notice when people post replies and stuff on groups.

I haven't been keeping up with it for a little while so I wouldn't know, no.

(Oh cool, there's a button to watch the entire forum. I don't think I could see that on mobile...)
