I used to follow your adventures with Tommy and the shop expansion on PM ( I think, I have been through several machinist sites, so many do not like hobbyists). Last I remember, you still had Tommy, and only 3 machines, but seemed to be doing great for a relatively new shop. Good to see you are still making chips.

HR is a struggle for everybody, Workers all want more money, and less work, and employers want to pay less, and work them more. Finding the right balance, starts with finding someone who cares. How you do that, is the age old question.

Good luck, Glad to see you stop by.

    What is your handle on PM?
    I am still a regular over there. But, I am trying to let that shop-thread die. It served its purpose. All I wanted to do was document the trials and tribulations of a start-up machine shop. Before I started my gig, I went looking for pertinent info/experiences relevant to that situation. I pretty much found nothing. I had gleaned a lot about machining in general from PM though. So, I felt it a good way to give back to the site. It did that alright. But, my work there is done. I still pop in daily, and help with questions if I can. But, not in that thread. It was almost off the first page, and somebody bumped it the other day. I was bummed! LOL
    A lot has changed if the last you knew was only three machines. Most notably, I moved the shop and the house.
    They are one and the same now. Bought 1-1/4 acre home in Gilbert with 2,000ft shop on the back of the property. I now work from home. the commute is awesome! LOL

    More then likely my handle would have been Superburban, I use it almost all the places I go on the web. I was thinking you had to move, I think you had issues getting the third machine in the shop you had. Its great that you got something at home, makes life so much better. I had already started to get more active at The Hobby Machinist, when I got bashed on PM, for even mentioning that I have and use an Atlas lathe for my small operations. So I left without looking back. I'm not looking to go commercial, but do some work on pumps for a local lawn sprinkler company, And some lathe work for an electric motor company. Not enough to write home about, which is fine with me. My skills are all manual, nothing close to CNC.
