combine the good attitude with initiative you are away - bang on a few doors of some small general machine shops in your area, maybe one will take you on after school or on a sat (obviously depending on what hours they work). Don't do it for free though, even if its a low wage, you should be paid - this way your employer has motivation to teach and spend time. give it away for free = low perception of value. If you've been reading those books you'll quickly go up the learning curve esp once your employeer realizes you are morve valuable to him than he bargained. Also network, somebodies friend of a friend will take you up on it
