    As anyone in the industry knows, finding good people is hard, and even harder when the work you do requires a true machinist. The right person will come along eventually.

    EG, I am guessing you are from an older generation. I hear that all the time but rarely see anyone step up to the plate. I think if it was just a straight OD grind with .0001 that may be true. We...
