Hey guys, just making an introduction. I started machining in a machine shop course at my high school. I did that and graduated with a diploma in Machine Technology. While in there I was in CO OP which is when I would leave school and go to work instead of going to machine shop class. I got a job for CO OP at an aerospace seal manufacturing company in RI. This is where I really learned how to machine. I started in the tool room making small order parts, fixtures, various tooling, etc. I learned a lot and really got good on an engine lathe, often machining parts to .0002" tolerance. After I graduated high school I stayed with the same company and put myself through various machining courses (mainly for CNC) in college. I made it through that and finally landed a position as the only CNC miller at my company. I was able to setup, program by hand, and operate the mill and all the lathes (except Mazak). Then, I learned how to use CamWorks and got a lot of experience will the mill programming on there. I have little experience with the turning feature on CamWorks but with time I'd be able to figure it out. Which brings me to where I am today. I'm still at the same company and have been here for 5 years. I'm 22 years old now and still have a lot to learn about the trade which is 90% of the reason why I joined this forum. I'm looking forward to discussing machining and metalworking on here with everyone and absorbing all the tips and knowledge you guys have to give.
