Popular pages report[edit]

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Metalworking/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Metalworking.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Metalworking, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Cleanup List[edit]

Hi, the links for the cleanup list on the project page are not working. Can I fix them with this link ? THX JP1308 (talk) 06:39, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Project restart[edit]

Hi everybody, I will try to restart this great project and I hope you will support this project too :-) THX JP1308 (talk) 14:21, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

I'm on board to contribute to topics regarding metal cutting in general. I'm also fairly confident to talk about topics relating to CNC, specifically milling and turning. I'm going to go through the list of articles for a bit and try improving them. If anyone wants to work with me on this, hit me up!

When is a screw machine not a screw machine?[edit]

I'm thinking a link is misdirected.

Article Screw-cutting_lathe contains two links for the term Screw Machine.

In-text there is a link to Screw_machine_(turning_center) which then redirects to Metal_lathe#CNC_lathe_/_CNC_turning_center.

The See also has a link to Screw_machine_(disambiguation) which then redirects to Screw_machine. (Apparently there's a screwy history to this - "Screw machine" was the original article and then was split and cut down to disambig page from the 2010 version of page )

That disambiguation page then has links to

Uh... so what should "Screw Machine" in the Screw-cutting lathe in-text point to?

Have we reached peak split/merge/redirect yet? This is turning my stomach. Shenme (talk) 04:47, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

Its the same. I dont think there actually are any lathes that can only cut screws and nothing else. The only difference in this class of small part, mass production lathes really is the implementation of the automatism method, be it old mechanically with cam gears and alike "repeating movement" gears, Punched tape(NC) or CNC and the tool construction (multiple toolheads, revolver, toolswitcher with magazine) which was always common since the parts produced with these machines (far from only screws btw.) are usually manufactured in a few seconds and thus among the earliest automated machines. Producing these manually only makes sense for unique single parts or very small series. I would recommend to simply delete that term, make a redirect at best. --Kharon (talk) 10:20, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
