Gears and Grounds

We like to write about mechanical history, the shoulders of all the greats we stand upon, current tech, basic machine shop knowledge, plus give you as much perspective, references and insights as possible. From old to new, and everywhere in between, we've taken our projects, experiences and interests, and curated them for hands-on people. We actually read the patents and do original research on the histories to give you some fresh and practical insight. For knowledge, and products that will get you headed to your shop, stick around for new content, and sign up for our Gears & Grounds newsletter.

Be sure to check out our video library as well!
