I am having a career change for now with the new job too. not going to be machining anymore, maybe a bit from time to time on the job. will be doing precision assembly of well,........secrete stuff that will go in outer space. I cant discuss it but the good news is it will pay 15% more then I was making at the plasma spray/machine shop I was at, and the bennies will be much better. will get alot of over time too, so with hourly pay it will be good. I dont have to bring my own tools either. I will be supplied with a complete Snap On tool box full of tools.
