Iím a tool maker at Fords and in a short wile will look to retirement. In the 26 years I have worked there I have been lucky enough to be able to use the equipment for my government jobs. I have seen other tool makers who have retired return time and time again asking if one of us could make something for them. I vowed I would not do that. I make a lot of things for my own projects I donít want to give that up. I had an old small Atlas that I sold and replaced with this one. Between that and the CNC mill I feel I can just about do anything I want. On top of that it gives me the capacity to do small machining jobs on the side for a bit of extra cash to help offset the cost of tooling. Kicking around a buisness card design if I decide to take on some outside work.
