1. Henson AL13 Shaving Razor

2. Mini Red Bricks

Know a machinist who wants to work on their dexterity? Who needs an accessory for their desk in the office? Who likes to build? Mini Red Bricks are a crowd-pleaser for many! Multifunctional and entertaining, they can be stacked high, built wide, or used to create something new.

3. V8 Engine Model Kit

We’re big fans of quality engineering and craftsmanship – that’s why we recommend the V8 Engine Model Kit from Engine DIY for the machinist in your life. With step-by-step instructions, turn 500+ components into a working four-cylinder engine. This gift takes one’s assembly skills for a test drive.

4. Okuma Playing Cards

Fold, call, or raise? You can do all three with Okuma playing cards. Work with a different kind of chips, improve your poker face, and add some Okuma flair to traditional card games when you get a new deck before the new year. Someone has to have the winning hand!

5. Steampunk Switch Plate

Clever, well-made, and intricate. These are the perfect words to describe the Steampunk Switch Plate that adds crafted engineering to any space. This product, with Victorian elements and sophisticated mechanics, transforms an ordinary light switch into something more. It even makes us think of automation – lights on or lights out.

6. CrushMetric SwitchPen

Taking notes? Take them to the next level with a pen that switches seamlessly, and almost magically, between two exteriors. We can’t promise that it’ll improve one’s penmanship, but the CrushMetric SwitchPen can keep working hands comfortable with a crushed grip.

7. Field Notes® Work Book

Every pen needs a notebook that works just as hard as it does. The heavy-duty, rugged flip-style work book from Field Notes is up for the job. Sketching plans and making lists have never been easier, especially with 80 pages of ruled or double-graph grid lines.

8. Trust Me, I’m An Engineer Socks

Keep two pairs for yourself or gift one to a friend! These calf-length, lightweight socks fit perfectly into most work boots for all-day comfort on the job. And with a special message on the bottom, this is the gift that keeps on giving.

9. The James Brand Mehlville Carabiner

Keep your keys close and locked into place with the Mehlville carabiner. Its innovative, dual-compartment design ensures that engineers and machinists don’t lose their keys when transferring the carabiner on and off belt loops in busy shop environments, or when they get home.

10. Machinery’s Handbook Guide

Now available in paperback and for Kindles, the 31st edition of the Machinery’s Handbook Guide is nearly 3,000 pages of technical, comprehensive, and practical resources that can be used to solve problems on the job. Machinists are sure to love this read.


We asked. We surveyed. We found the answer. The GENOS M560-V is the machine most manufacturers want in their shops right now. We don’t blame them! It’s affordable, built to last a lifetime, and always performs at its highest. The only thing that can make this machine tool even better is tying a bright red bow around it this season.
