just wondering how many out there are machinists like myself that are members. what kind of shops does anyone work at, job shops, production, protype, whatever. i have 15+ years as a machinist in cnc mills and lathes and all conventional equipment and have surface grinding expeirence. i also do all the welding in the shop. currently leadman at a conventional only production/tooling/prototype shop. we are a FAA certified repair shop, so our "production" parts are repairable parts. we dont make parts from scratch just tooling to run parts in the machine shop and our grind shop and spray shop. we are primarely a plasma spray shop for most all other industries. any fellow machinist out there?
