Good for the basics. Classroom setting. Instructor at the whiteboard the whole time. Gets a little long but it teaches you the basics. If your looking for a job in basic cnc operating or bought or built a mill or lathe these videos would be a good start. How to do it with expensive cam software. Donny
Too much self promotion. Not very informative. Volume was not balanced (to low).
The video was informative for a new person in the game like me. One thing I have noticed about the videos is that the sound varies due to the instructor not wearing a microphone.
I would recommend the products.
This is an excellent dvd. I will rent it again.
