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.
true u could run something that takes me 3 hours to make, in 45 sec in the cnc machine but we gotta work up to it . It is nice to know you can make something that precise on the manual lathe, even though some people say it cant be done.

i had to make something similar to this. it was a bearing press tool. 6061-t651. all od's i had .0002 tolerance called out, .0005 perpendicularity everywhere, and .0000 runout on circularity of the bore over almost 5".. sorry about the contrast. i made a quick drawing and didn't save it before i realized the clarity issue. you get the idea. it took 6 hours to make it... no tailstock, the hardinge copy lathe i was using's tailstock was .005 below center and .01 in positive x off. i made it in one shot.
