For the next 10 years, I increased my skills in set-up and lay-out for single- and multi- spindle screw machines. It was during this time, I had my first exposure to CNC mills. After that, I became the general manager for a machine shop that employed 75 people.
I started my own shop in 2000. My shop has several CNC mills and lathes, a screw machine, and a large engine lathe (24" swing and 12' between centers). I have a centerless grinder as well as a tool and cutter grinder, along with various other machinery.
My machines give me a number of capabilities so I can meet the various needs of my customers. I specialize in production machining, using a variety of materials. I can also do custom repairs on parts that cannot be replaced.
If you are having difficulty finding someone to do the work you need, stop by to see me. I can accommodate most anyone.

My experience in machining spans over 40 years, starting in my father’s screw machine shop at the age of 14. After high school, I apprenticed with a tool and die maker for 2 years.
