Yep, just yesterday morning I modified 15 coil assemblies for work. Milled a surface down about a hundred thou, then milled new wire passage slots. My shop is a much nicer place than the shop at work and my machines are in better shape. And I don't have to spend a half hour finding tooling.
Little jobs like this keeps everyone happy - the work gets done and I don't get charged personal days when I have to take off a few hours for a doctor's appointment.

Theory & Practice-
Theory is when you know something but it doesn't work.
Practice is when something works but you don't know why.
It it dangerous to combine Theory & Practice;
nothing works and you don't know why.
