Are there free basic Solidworks CAM tutorials somewhere?
May be some on YouTube
If you are on maintenance, MySOLIDWORKS Standard has some tutorials.

I'll check them out. I'm, hopefully, not going to be doing any real programming just trying to show some illustrate some potential methods and benefits to those methods. I have a significant amount of CAM programming experience and machining experience, just not any experience with SW CAM.
As with anything I suppose, it seems entirely unintuitive in comparison to what I'm used to, largely Surfcam.
There are plenty included with SOLIDWORKS:
C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\2021\SOLIDWORKS CAM\lang\English\Manuals
If you are running 2019 0r 2020 version, then obviously the file path will be different.
You can access them from here:
I have made some videos that might help you getting started:
CADWorks.dk ApS - YouTube
And - for all to download - my own created 'Book of Features' to explain the different feature types and when to use them.
I do follow this CAM forum and will make some instructional videos on demand, based on questions raised here - so you might want to consider allowing notifications from the YouTube channel
