    I'm late to the party as well, not sure how I missed such a good thread when it started. I grew up on a farm in southern Idaho, so learned a little bit of everything. From there I went to school and started working in a fab shop that specialized in ski lifts and amusement rides to pay my way. I started as an apprentice to a master fitter, I really miss his advice, from there I worked my way through school studying electrical engineering. We did a lot of work for Geneva steel and kennecott copper as well. They had me fitting on my own in a couple years. Since I knew just enough to be dangerous they had me running some of the machine tools as well. I went to work for Hewlett Packard in 94' but after six months decided I had made a mistake so back to school and the fab shop studying crop and soil science this time. My grandpa was a machinist and I have two uncles that still make their living running machine shops, but it was working in the fab shop where we made a lot of stuff in house that got me started into machining. Finished school again for the second time and came back to the farm. I brought my love of machining and fabricating with me, so I started assembling my own machine shop. So now I farm and run my small machine shop on the side.

    It looks like I am one of those named in the OP, but must have missed the post, but now it's a little moot, as 5 years on I have retired!

    And you've already forgotten what you did before retirement? Looks like OldTimer's Disease is setting in...
