    Amazing video Tony. I am in awe of your talent but I can't help but feel a little inadequate at the same time. Although I have no real interest in machining or metal working, I feel that I take away enough knowledge that I can binge watch your channel for hours.

    I think this was the first video that I saw ad, since then, I am always visiting your channel and work! Thank´s for sharing.. Btw, sorry for my english, it´s rusty.

    No fair: you used a laser robot to braze the bit onto the fabricated boring bar.

    Definition of a hobbiest machinist: spend $600 in expert time to replicate a $19.95 Bialetti Moka espresso pot available at almost any NYC grocery store or bodega.
    (Sorry, hobbiest machinist manque here. Been reading machine tool porn since the '60s.)
    Love the build.

    This video in particular helped me clean up a Goodwill find. Not sure what the previous owner used it for, but there were a couple parts missing, and there were pepper seeds in the percolator thing in the top half.

    I enjoyed so much this video, the soundtrack is relaxing, your design and technical skills are from a master, your sense of humor so clever.

    great video. love the comic value. FYI on that pressure relieve valve it may have a 1/16 pipe tap so it will get tighter the more you screw it down. Love the sword vid too!

    I admire your skill and aesthetic, but practically you have created a pot with a huge design flaw. The reason shop bought ones taper is to allow for the volume of water required to make a proper cup of coffee, not an egg cup, and also for stability. This is not an espresso machine.

    I've been wondering if it was possible to make a coffee mug / water bottle on a lathe – the double wall style.
    This espresso machine comes mighty close.

    Guess the lid should have covered the spout to avoid that dribble of java coming out.
    Nice work! I like my espresso Cuban style, with too much sugar (I'm not Latino, but I've worked with them too much, and it's rubbed off on me).
    I wish I had a metal turning lathe and a mill. I bought Gingery's book, but the caveman metal work required to build his tools is too much for me.
