    Machine shop owners know and talk to each other often.. if you make bad/poor choices it may come back on you..best to walk away in good graces..no matter how bad things are/were.

    Back a long time ago in a land far away when cam operated screw machines were as popular as sand at the beach if a journeyman applied for a job in the field it was almost a given one or more people at the place he was applying at had crossed paths with him before.

    I started out in screw machines, and often ran into people I had worked with elsewhere. In CT, that was the only way to get a raise. Back in those days, $.25 more per hour was worth moving for. I worked in three different places with one guy.

    They'll hire you for part time until your replacement can be found? More likely until you train your own replacement with the knowledge/experience you have. Skilled labor isn't cheap, cheap labor isn't skilled. Your call.

    3 different places with one guy is my record also. There were probably over a dozen I worked at two places with.

    The fixture world is like that up here. I've worked with quite a few guys at different shops over the years. I started as the young guy, and now most of the "old" guys are gone. Not many shops around anymore either....

    They just fired my former boss for 'not doing his job'. I think they fired him for just the opposite. He was one of the few people there who was actively trying to make a difference.
