    I almost went down that rabbit hole. Just couldn't justify the cost of training as a civilian and then a couple years of making less $ than i am now.

    Very cool pic!

    I love being a machinist and making things. Just got done with this miniature arbor press. Last two photos are beside the table top press and the floor model with a 12 ounce can.

    On-site contract Analyzer Project Specialist for a "big oil" company in Houston. I basically design systems that analyze different processes. Some of the analysis is used for EPA reg's, some are used for tighter process control. Not necessarily the most fun, but it pays well and is never boring.

    Just got done with a fixture for a customer so they can stretch a spring to look inside it. Hopefully it works, their design not ours.

    I miss a decimal place every now and then. Today it was 1.00 instead of .100

    I was fortunate enough to machine some parts for HArriet a few years ago. Sorry, not in the video but I machine parts for G.E. Specifically.. I work on both turbine and compressor sides of the turbine.
