In a small garage in Wisconsin, amidst the hum of machines and the scent of oiled metal, our journey began.


It was 1998, and our founder, Shane, had just inherited his grandfather’s old machine tool set. Rather than let it gather dust, he dove headfirst into the intricate world of metalworking, discovering not just a skill, but a deep-seated passion.

Our blog, “MachineToolsHub”, was born from Shane’s dedication and an insatiable curiosity to learn more. As he navigated the challenges and joys of metalworking, he began documenting his experiences, hoping to connect with like-minded souls.

But this isn’t just Shane’s story. Over the years, MachineToolsHub has grown to be a haven for professionals and hobbyists alike. From the seasoned expert in the heart of the industry to the curious novice looking to craft their first piece, we’ve built a community bound by our shared love for the craft.

Today, we aren’t just a blog. We are a story of tradition, passion, and relentless pursuit of perfection. We are a testament to the belief that through collaboration, learning, and sharing, we can elevate the craft to new heights.

Join us, not just as a reader, but as a part of our ever-growing family. Together, let’s write the next chapter in the illustrious tale of machine tools and metalworking.
