How history taught us how to drill deep straight holes

Have you ever heard the saying “the more things change the more they stay the same?” The same mantra applies in the machining industry. While machinists and engineers can get caught up in the messy details of technology, gadgets, processes, and much more, sometimes you forget about the principles that drive a machining application. The principles of machining remain much the same as it did in the Industrial Revolution – and even before.
