I am a Meteorologist. I sit in front of a bunch of cornpooters all day.

Our shop is a job shop so we're always changing set-ups and making brand new parts. That's one of the reasons I like my job; if it was just production all the time I would go crazy. Now I'm hands on with the part from blueprint to Mastercam to set-up to finished product. It's fun some days, hair-pulling most, but always satisfying at the end of the day.
Yeah, that's exactly my situation. We are a job shop making components mainly for medical (optometry) and oil and gas exploration. I also take parts from print forward, I'm using Gibbs CAM/CAD. The main frustration is the owners, if they would only stay home the job would be easier. I don't like production work, and haven't had to do too much lately as we only have a couple setup guys now. Most of our lots are 250 pieces or less so nothing is ever up for too long.

Thanks, I got it used a few years back for a decent price. Had to replace one print head and two dampers when it got here. It's been running ever since.

Anybody got any favorite melon wine recipes?

Shaky, are you a breeder? Only time I've seen an operation like that was at Syngenta. Very cool!

Yep. I am a matchmaker for melons. Truthfully, I just put on the Marvin Gaye and nature takes care of the rest.

It's deciding which of their children must die that is the hard fun part.
