    Regarding “How it’s Made” ep 11 today:
    If you are detail oriented, note that the machine that shapes the contour of the hockey stick blades is not, as described, a “lathe”, but rather a “milling machine” or “router” (or even “cutterhead”).
    Odd they got that wrong, what else do they get wrong that we don’t catch?

    Sharp catch Nick. Interesting indeed, I’m gonna have to check that out now.
