    Still working on stuff at the farm, but it's slow.

    Since I was allowed to use these picture in my final presentation, I think it's ok to show it here. Gives an idea of the parts I'm working with

    I'd feel WAY more better running that stuff Manuelly than via CNC!
    One slightly wrong line of code, and ....

    I'm sure that's nervous work, but I'm also sure that it pays well, and is not a "push-push" environment.

    It's a pretty interesting lathe, modular and can somehow cut threads without a physical connection to the spindle.

    I work in a very unique cool place, and I learn something new every day.

    However "relaxed" is not one of the words I'd use to describe it.

    I was in a turbine repair shop fixing a machine once. I casually asked what happened if they blew a tolerance. The foreman more or less told me that doesn't happen.

    Lol, I can tell you it happens. Quite alot really. Pretty much the only thing that cant be fixed are new blade root fits in a virgin forging. Especially steam stuff, it can pretty much all be welded, shifted, shimmed or inserted.

    Gas stuff is diffrent mostly because of blades and nobody besides an OEM can make some of them (think first stage hot section with through blade cooling).

    Everyone has elevated rotating equipment repair to this mythical status, honestly youd be amazed how much is done with simple tools and worn out machines.

    I've seen some tricks by literal world class machinists tho......
