    It is a fun place to work. The company has been good to me, and everyone on the crew gets along well.

    You definitely have to pay attention, however, as many of the parts are one-offs, and mistakes on large parts can be very costly.

    Impressive sh!t, having worked for heavy SAE concerns most of the parts are larger & mo’ expensive, so scrap is not cool…

    In reality they pay the machinist about the same to drill a ½” hole and want the same speed as if done on a bench drill press. If someone REALLY scraps a large part it’s a big-big deal you never forget.

    Good luck,
    Matt

    One of my co-workers has posted a series of videos of some of the large parts we make (crank, gears, etc) on tic tok.

    He has some nice time-lapse videos of flipping a large ring, the gear-gasher taking a 2” deep cut, a large crank (30k lbs) turning on the vtl, etc.

    Search : ProjectFenderBender for the vids.
