    Nice, job shop or cnc production? I would love to work at a job shop. More manual machining & constantly working on different stuff. I'd love to learn CNC but it seems like it could be very boring depending on the shop & their work.

    Good luck with the interview. :thumbsup:

    I've done a mod or two
    Job shop that does smaller batch CNC work too (they have a vertical CNC mill, a lathe or two) but most of their work is manual one off stuff, they're right in between a couple huge auto shops and a place the restores just about anything made of metal. I'm excited, they're very busy too which bodes well.

    If it was a year or two from now I'd have had an opportunity to work for some friends at their shop which is exclusively CNC, but I think it will be great to start out fresh in a job shop.

    Have you ventured over there?

    Everything from AC drip tube, to AC noises, auto transmission, rust on seat tracks, to using your headlights to change a stop light and more.

    Oh, nah, I'm not interested in the Surge. Not useful for me. I pretty much have what I need now for cordless tools. Just waiting for the M12 die grinder to come out. After that nothing really else I want..... that is until they come out with something else new that catches my eye.

    Everything but the driveshaft.
    As luck would have it, the two parts that I didn't replace during the refresh started failing this week.

    1) Radiator has started a small leak around the seam. Ordered a new Denso from Amazon. Used Discover credits to pay for it.
    2) TPS. Throws a P0120 code every morning. Unplugged it and replugged it thinking it might be connection related. That helped for a couple of days. Ordered Part 89452-35020 to replace it.

    Ordered a set of Wheelers AAL20-1 Add-a-Leafs with a set of 6.75" U-bolts to hopefully lift and level the rear 1.5". Also, ordered a set of 3 degree shims. I'm not sure I need the shims with only 1.5" AALs but that's all I could find on Wheelers site.
