What is your current CNC Position?
I work in a machine shop.
I have a daytime job, cnc is for fun.
1 or 2 man shop just starting out.
Work fulltime job, cnc is a small job on the side as well.
None of the above.
What is your current CNC Position?
I used to be self employed, i uprooted completely and moved from South Africa to New Zealand about a year ago. I miss running my wire edm a lot! I miss the jobbing enviroment. I am currently working for a state owned research company. All the red tape is so FRUSTRATING that i can have a heart attack and a stroke at the same time!!!!

I'm lazy, I'm only "sparking" when the EDM is running....
I'm a violin maker and still have to keep the daytime job is science to pay the bills. If I make and sell one ot 2 instruments a year and use the CNC to make part of them I assume i qualify as "Work fulltime job, cnc is a small job on the side as well."
If you cut it to small you can always nail another piece on the end, but if you cut it to big... then what the hell you gonna do?
I do Single Point Diamond Machining with mine. I also have a CNC'd Turret Mill that I can mess about with, but am still learning this one.
I love deadlines- I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
I am a full time CNC Programmer and Opperater at a large furniture company. I also do a little side work with my own CNC at home.

I am a full time Chip sweeper and cnc lathe operator.i make parts for motorcycles
Taking the chance in the poll, We're a CNC shop located East Mexico City, Mexico (the country) with a recently increased capacity due to our ISO 9000 Certification and working on expansion.
I drop this into here to get attention driven towards South Texas in the USA and any other regions around there or the border line or anywhere.
Sure we can quote any job and prototype it if model requires it and beat any other budget, specially those ones coming from CA. Precision acquired within 1000/in "No problema", Coordinates Measuring Machine available and measurements lab.

once was self employeed even though it was my most enjoyable position , i
later realized beer guzzling for a living wasn t leaving much room for advancement and it didn t pay enough, the return on the daily empties deposits by far could not keep up to my companies consumption and expendatures and literally drained the company funds ,
so now i m a slave to the man and the bank
I had a problem voting in this poll, cos I work in a machine shop and it's fun. Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive?
Well i'm sure alot of guys have fun. If they come to CNC Zone after work hours, it must obviously be somewhat fun to them right
I have a tool, furniture, casework & soon-to-be woodworkers supply shop that has been working without a cnc. Now I've got one ready to crank up and really don't know what I'm going to do with it...got lot's of ideas though. Right now I had to go to my "real" ole ex job to re-qualify for insurance. Got to put in 300 hours a year to keep up insurance and retirement benefits. Otherwise it's tough being self employed. If you have a family, health insurance is quite a hurdle. I'm too scared to go without it. Can't wait to get back and "jog" my mill around a bit.
