Jeff Hooper is the creative mastermind behind Backhand Bikes.

Using AutoDesk Fusion 360 and the practical knowledge he has gained in working a career in manufacturing, Jeff creates designs that are almost organic, but are CNC machined from metal.

We talk about CAD/CAM, solid modelling, climb milling versus conventional milling, IMTS, ToolingU, and the perceptions versus the misconceptions of a college education.

Jim and Jason were nice enough to come on the show, and we had a great time and great conversation. The main topic we focused on was how do we get students interested in manufacturing? We need to change perceptions:


1. Get talking about how clean the shop environment is
2. Show that modern machines are the definition of high technology
3. Get more women involved in manufacturing
4. Get aesthetics on display
5. Highlight innovative thinkers

A degreed engineer by trade, Tom spends his days pushing paper, and doesn't have the opportunity to scratch the maker itch.

Nights and weekends is when Tom is able to spend his personal time doing small woodworking and metalworking projects in his home shop.

We dive into his back story, if a college degree is the right choice, Tom's current crowdfunding campaign to restore a Southbend lathe, and where he sees the future of the maker movement.
