Inside the CNC
What a CNC Swiss does all day. We've condensed about 8 hours of stainless steel machining down to 1:17. About 800 Lag studs were cut during this time period. Enjoy! from r/metalworking

About 900 to 1,000 lag receiver swage stops are produced a day from our machine shop. Wanting to offer you a “machinist eye view” of the process, we magnetically mounted a GoPro onto the interior of one of our Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines.

The above video depicts an eight-hour time-lapse with the machine only pausing for occasional tool change outs and re-calibration.
