Bull woods by williams
I love my wife She bought me the entire 6 volume set of "The Bull of the Woods" cartoons. Great machining humor, and an excellent window into the past. They sell the books. Reply With Quote. Pazuzu, I bought the whole 6 volumes too not long ago, thanks to a tip from someone on this forum. When I ordered them, the guy at Lee Valley just about fell over, he didn't know about volumes himself, and here is a guy from NZ ordering them!
Practical Machinist has all the inside information I have enjoyed them, there is more too them than I expected, sometimes quite a comment delivered. Overall pretty cynical, but even handed - sees the story from the company and the floor points of view.
One minute laughing at one, then the other. Here are couple that caught my eye My son gave me Volumes for Christmas Never even knew it was a comic strip.

Our local Mazak dealer gives us big calendar every year with these guys on it. Never even realized it was machine specific, since all the comics on it are just poking fun at management, thats probably intentional.
The owner of one of the shops I worked at banned the "Bull" calender because he felt it made too much fun of management Rustystud Guest. I find it interesting a set of volumes about machining called "Bull of the Woods". When this term originated pre industrial age in the lumber camps of the south.

His western cartoons are every bit as good as the machine shop ones. I enjoy the books but did not know there are 6 volumes in the set.
The ironic part is I used to run a machine shop for a laboratory for many years. Williams no relation to the creator of the series. Rustystud- You're right. The "Bull of the Woods" was a term used by Lumberjacks. On the cartoon was a one block cartoon. The "Bull" was popular locally because the subject matter came out of the Bullard Machine Tool Company in Bridgeport,where many Danburians commuted to work in the machine trade.
It Seems that J. Williams worked at Bullard's a few years before moving on to other endeavors and that provided his grounding in his drawings of the machine environment, as well as the characters involved in his humor.
Pazuzu71, a big thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'll certainly check this out.

Thanks for posting this. I used to see them hung up in the shop when I first started working in the 60's. And yes, the cartoon accurately portrayed life in a shop. I'm bringing this thread back because: A I'm a jerk.
But it's just whatever's left, so if you want to fill out your collection on the cheap grab them quick before they're gone. I think "snap" refers to an easy, long running job like turning a big roll on a lathedoes that sound right? Darn it! Originally Posted by Mark Rand.
