Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late. I use the side door, that way Lumbergh can't see me, and, after that I just sorta space out for about an hour. I just stare at my desk; but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch, too. I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.

manual machining is fun. sometimes it just takes too long. i spent 6 hours making a very high precision lathe part that i could have ran on our cnc in 15 minutes. but it was tied up in 3 hour cycle time runs, after being offline for 10 days for turret motor failure, and then 2 more turret motors.

operation of vertical milling centers and horizontal lathes is ok... but more money in programming by far. it helps when you prove your own program instead of someone else's. i spent 2.5 years with my last employer... started as an operator then in about 3 months was doing tool/fixture setups and then got into programming. 2 axis lathes in g code is easy as pie. cnc covers sooooo many aspects of manufacture: robotic welders/painters/etc, machining, assembly, if you know g code it is possible to find work.

Haha, nice!




I'm a machinist as well. I went to school for tool and die and though I do many things, I'm primarily a jig and fixture maker.

I'm a paper pusher. The fancy name is project management, but it's just scheduling meetings and harassing people.
