    Default Job offer

    I have more work than I can handle right now here is a copy of an ad I am running. I cleared this with George and many thanks to him.
    Small shop looking for machinist, currently a 2 person shop, would suit somebody who is retired or semi retired, anybody with a pulse welcome to reply. One off jobs that are interesting no heavy work, flexible hours NOT full time but lots of hours right now. Conventional machining no CNC. Fairly easy work but must solve problems [it's proto typing]. email brief resume wishingstar@shaw.ca
    Thanks

    Are you looking for machinists to work in your shop or are you looking for small shops to farm out the work to? It would be a long drive from Taylorsville Ky to British Columbia every day back and forth. I don't drive quite that fast, not that I haven't tried and I don't own a high speed airplane.
    It's only ink and paper

    "Lots of talking"? Heck, I'm qualified if I can find a pulse.

    If you were down here I'd love to but it's a long commute even from Victoria.

    If you need two people I could pick up Mickyf on the way past his house.
