    Default New guy.......retired machinist just looking around.

    I answered a help wanted ad for a local job shop in the mid-1970s. I didn't know the difference between a drill and an end mill at the time, but I was pretty good with math. I went thru an apprenticeship and worked in a half dozen or so different shops and factories over the years. I spent the last few years doing field machining all over the country, mostly on gas and steam turbines.

    Its addicting, reading the post here. I find I'd rather do that than produce product.
