Very cool! What camera are you using and how are you protecting it? I've been wanting to do that with my VMC.

Yes, a nest camera. I just set it on top of the machine & plugged it in. They really easy to get up and running.

Starting one of our mills in a little while. Turn down your volume, I'll have sound on so I can hear the machine running.

It's probably one of the FADAL machining centers they've got. Drool worthy hardware for sure! :)

A FADAL. They're easy to work on and relatively inexpensive to maintain.
