Article with general reference material?

Not a bad thought.  Article with links to some of the more solid online stuff.

Excellent series done by an old retired machinist and shop teacher.  

Machine Shop Tips.  Taps, tapping, threads, how to PROPERLY use a file, all you ever wanted to know about drill bits, how to properly use a helicoil,  etc. 

Whole playlist



Files, for example.

Consider this a good tech reference, I have found it really useful for some of the odder items that I have needed to find over the years for different projects and whatnot.  Not really directly Cummins or Ram related, but great stuff anyway.  

Billavista is a wizard from Canada and RCAF officer who has spent the past 20 years or so posting this stuff on Pirate4x4. Now, he has his own site.  Below are my favorite and most useful articles that you guys might like to peruse. 

When the guy says Bible, he means it.  His articles are very very through and have lots of great pictures.
