Today’s Machining World, Graff-Pinkert’s sister company, just launched its weekly podcast, Swarfcast!
The podcast centers around similar topics that readers have enjoyed in Today’s Machining World during its first 18 years.
Noah Graff recently interviewed Miles Free, the Precision Machined Products Association’s Director of Industry Research and Technology. He’s a guru of machining industry world politics and one of the world’s foremost experts on the steel trade.
In March when President Trump tweeted his intentions to implement a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum coming into the United States, Free was bombarded from news outlets around the globe for his analysis—he really knows his steel.
He compared the tariffs to the economic sanctions on imports that the United States would inflict on an enemy like Russia or Iran. “Nobody would have dreamed that the White House would ever use an entire industry as a negotiating technique” Free said.
