    I have a one man job shop and I don't advertise but plenty of work seems to find me. I am known to be able to tackle jobs in the area that most no one else will touch, or for the really big jobs that outsize everybody else I am kind of Like wgnrr1. I only have one big lathe a big mill and a big surface grinder, but I pretty much never do repeat jobs so I don't need a bunch of machines setup for particular tasks. I am adding a Large HBM to finish out my machining abilities. I am renovating a large old barn and will be moving all my shop stuff into there as soon as I get it done, then I will probably look at expanding my capabilities again. I really enjoy the repair and one off work and I hate turning jobs away because I don't have the machines to do them.

    He was already small to start with.
