I forgot to mention that I started a new job two weeks ago.
The people there seem really nice, including the owner and shop foreman who interviewed me. I hope to learn a lot there. I've never really done any grinding before and although I've used countless carbide drills before, it had never occured to me that I'd be making them someday.
It takes me back to my early days in the shop. All manual work with specialized machines, some of them built back in the '40s. It feels good to get my "hands on" again.
Hopefully I get the chance to snap some good photos, but perhaps not- lots of trade secrets there, don't ya know?
... oh, and it's day shift work. Back to the Blog!!!!!!!
