I wish I lived closer to you, the opportunity to learn in person from a experienced machinist would be great.

If you are not already planing on it a great place to go to meet machinists is the N.A.M.E.S. show at the Yack arena in Wyndot the third weekend in April. always see some Amazing projects.

My shelf I had shop MFG Hangar doors for over 30 years. After 911 no work came in the door sold it. They are still making doors.
I work in other shop now I have a journeymen machinist card for repair.
After having chemo all the doctors said do not go back to machine work.
Today I have small shop with a SB 9A and a HF small mill doing paper work for some one else.
