    I usually try and refrain until the help goes home. (I don't share well! LOL)
    Sometimes on Friday's the help helps me break in to a 12'er.

    First shop I worked at, guy was notorious for showing up on friday needing work done, on friday. If he showed up in the morning, he knew he had better have a box of blueberry fritters. If it was past lunch, he knew he had better have at least a 6pk.

    Last shop I worked at, cleaning up and shutting down for the day.

    Boss strolls in and hands me a print and some BS line about needing it ASAP. I said no problem, will get it started first thing tomorrow morning. I could tell by the way he was hemming and hawing he wanted it done, now.

    I said as much and he said he would really like it done by tonight.

    No problem I said, by the time you get back with a pizza and a 6pk, I'll have the material cut and the part programmed.

    Uhhhhhhh ....... he just stared blankly at me.

    I like supreme I said, and turned around and walked away.

    By the time he got back with the pizza and beer the machine was already making chips. By the time I finished half the pizza and a few beers he had a shiny new "billet" dirt track part.

    Yay....

    If I ever have employee's, I won't forget how to motivate, and thank them.

    I found a local centerless guy who learned in LA. He always said you had to be really good to make it down there.

    Anyway, my first job with him was a medical part with several concentric diameters under 1/8" on a 4"long part, tolerances in the low tenths. Couldn't find anybody else in the Seattle area who would even try it. He didn't see a problem. Material cost was little, I really had nothing to lose. Parts were good, I told everybody I knew. It was kinda weird though 'cause he didn't seem to have much work.

    The only puzzle with the guy was sometimes you'd send him what seemed like an easy job and he'd say he couldn't make good parts with it because the material was bad, or bent, or whatever.

    I liked him and convinced him to get flyer made to distribute to local shops. He did. Sure enough, his picture was on the flyer along with a couple of his drop-in buddies. The clock in the background showed 2 in the afternoon. They all had a beer in their hand. That explained everything. If he did your work in the morning it'd be good, forget it after lunch. Too bad, the guy was a treasure.

    I used to do work for a Home Brew company. The guy made up kits, sold supplies, made beer and judged Home Brew events.

    The work wasn't great, but the beer was.

    Koehler beer was made In Erie, Pa.

    I toured it as a leetle kid.

    I noticed the forklift drivers having equipped their forklifts with "marine cup holders" the ones that swivel.

    I found out that being an old German company, anyone could drink as much as they wanted thru out the day.

    Get drunk and your fired on the spot.

    The tier 1 shop I worked at had a zero tolerance policy. More than a couple folks were fired in the time I was there.

    A friend of mine went to the Fatherland and worked at our parent facility there for a few months. They had beer, several kinds, in the vending machines. They had a similar policy apparently. You could drink as much as you wanted. Too much, and you were fired. He said everyone there was extremely responsible and took every precaution. Like when operating a heavy crane moving a 4000 lb die set, the die makers would set down their beer, so that in an emergency, no beer was spilled.

    If I was making the fixtures or programing then that would be different. Loading parts into fixtures, setting fixtures in place, etc for hours, a beer does ease the monotony some. And damn do the rare few taste good! A nice warm stout does endure being bottled well.
