Sorry Ryan, I could only stand 10 minutes of that guy.

Two things, first he needs a girlfriend and second I can't take anyone serious who would leave a finish cut on that pegboard that like, specially the top.

I've watched some of his other videos recently and he does some pretty cool stuff. There's sort of a Youtube machinist community - this guy along with a bunch of other machinists, collaborate with each other. They'll trade work back and forth, or work together on some common project. You'll often hear them referring to some of the other guys in their videos, so then you have to go find that guy and start watching his videos.

In any machine shop there is no ultimate setup. It all depends on work-flow ...

I used to teach Boeing's Version of the Toyota Production System (TPS) ... It was called Accelerated Improvement Workshop (AIW). I think it's morphed into something else ... but there is always a way to improve a process.

Lets see everyone else's shop that they own. If you don't want to watch it, don't watch lol. I don't understand the troll threads about some guy starting and running his own biz the way he wants. Start up your own shop and show him who's boss...

The guy has some good ideas and first being it's never finished. Some sort of formal origination is better than nothing. Being able to put your hand on the correct tool immediately is what the goal is. The cutout foam on the top of the box is a great one to me. Also understand that the shop being shown is a multi user shop where everyone has to be able to work. That takes a different thought process than where most of us have a one man shop.

That being said I'd kick his butt for his file storage and some of the cutters, and he even admitted he knows better.

I like how he addresses early that there isn't a right answer, and that you can't just have a set in stone structure of tools. It's always going to change, and you are going to constantly ways to edit and improve your setup and your workflow.

Still, the more that I see of this Kaizen foam, the more I want it.

He has some good points, and the foam might work well for a shop with employees where you have to hold peoples hands to keep them accountable and to make sure things don't "walk off"...however I cant see using the foam in my personal shop. Things are always changing....I would be cutting foam every day..

I have like 4 times as much as that guy and have probably a 1/10 of the room. He would be screwed in my garage. He takes way to much room for way to little.

The guy must be making money hand over fist. He just added a new Haas VM3 to his line up. No bad for a garage start up.

Comments like this crack me up, Lets see you start a biz from a 2 bedroom apt in NYC and turn it into a full fledged machine shop in under 10 years with low debt ratio.

John has the right idea, its called bootstrapping, keep costs to a minimum, while putting out great quality.

As far as the tool storage I can see it working for certain things, but like a lot of others I would not work so well for me. If I was doing the same job over and over I can see it working well.
