    ROFLMA!!!! Loading parts correctly and hitting the green button I don't think could be considered a semi or skilled job.

    It requires enough skill to make sure there's no chips in the jaws, orientation of stock is correct, and the ability to use a torque wrench. Oh and be able to find and press the green button. Anybody who can flip burgers can do that.

    All it really requires is the ability to do repetitious work, week in week out, a pulse, and the ability to get to work on time.

    I don't know your area, but min wage here is $8.25. I'm sure there would be tons of people applying for a "no experience required, willing to train job" here where I live. Hell, I see all the time ads for EXPERIENCED machinst for $12-$15, similar to the ad I posted about 5 ax programming, etc etc for $19++ (two plusses mind you!)...

    Although I reluctantly agree with you, should not have gotten to "pallets of scrap" in the first place.

    Last jackoff we hired scrapped 4 of 15 parts in 2 setups. Was then fired. New guy (from this week) is doing great so far.

    Not pallets of scrap from 1 job but more pallets of scrap over the lifetime of my career owning a shop. my current machinists and operators are allotted 5 spare pieces of material for setup and most of the time we get all 5 spares turned in for inventory instead of for non conformance (scrap)

    Making small parts its not that big of a deal, making bombardier APU brackets that takes a 14" x 7" x 6" piece of 2025 aluminum makes a big deal.

    point being that since i stopped hiring low wage employees, scrap has gone WAY down

    You have more of everything than anybody else, am I the only one who notices that?

    I bet you have more pallets of scrap that anyone else, and your scrap is more impressive than any of my or anybody else's mundane scrap.

    I'm sure you could lick your toilet bowl it's so clean.

    I bet you pass OSHA inspections with flying colors.

    I bet you pass ISO inpsections with zero findings.

    I'm sure your shop dogs are intelligent enough to go to Harvard or Stanford.

    I bet when Peter North is unavailible, they have you on speed dial.

    I bet when ChristianXXX is unavailible, they have you on speed dial.

    If I was female I'd want your children.

    If I was a truck, I'd want to driven by you, rougher the better.

    If I was a Harley I'd want to ridden by you.

    I'm neither gay or bi, but if I had to be topped, it would be you, you sexy thing.

    Your so perfect.

    Wheelie,
    Deep breaths, advice will come in many forms which may or may not fit.
    You are getting wound up and defensive. Step back, good to you or not it is just some random advice and run your world as you see it.
    I do not know how to run your shop and no others can.
    Just do not get wound up in some sort of fight.
    Opinions and mileage will vary. Consider the why of the things you do not like. Disagree but consider.
    Opposing views are the best thing since sliced bread if we are willing to let them in without hurt.

    Haven't heard anything about darin in a while. But, last I did hear he left the state.
    Just did a little google-fu, and wasn't able to find any recent info that I had not already seen.
    Darin W Neagle. Remember that name! Stay away. Far away.
