I’m a 54 year old Tool & Die maker who has plied his trade in the Kent valley in Washington state for the last 35 years. My main weaponry has consisted of the trusty Bridgeport knee mill, a nice (heavy) !2″ rotary turntable, engine lathes, tool post grinder, surface grinders, sine plates, saws, files, ext. All the old ELCUT sinker EDM does is burn out busted taps since wire EDM came along, those many years ago, but it still works. A rather old school environment.
Two weeks ago I was introduced to a brand new TRAK DPM SX3P with all the bells and whistles. Next week I will have my first class learning to use SPACECLAIM 3D modeling software. All of it is so very exciting I don’t know how to act. :)
