            He rebuilds and adapts slightly larger motors to those funny foreign Bridgeports. He can add power, but not rigidity, which is why he's so complimentary toward them.

              Hey Up John,

              Looks like you have these guys baffled as to what you do for a living, if I were you I would keep up the air of Mystique, I promise not to tell.

                Yep, I estimate hes gotten up to 25hp on the back of his latest bridgeport. Goes from rigid to quaking mess of tangled metal in 3.6 seconds flat.

                Sometimes he blows a drive shaft though:


                Other days, they just won't handle the full 25hp, start glowing and melt down

                  By day he is a mild mannered machinist.... But under the glint of a full moon he retreats into his inner sanctum where all manner of hedonistic torturistic devices are applied to freshly captured bridgeports...

                    I thought he snuck around and collected CNC machines from tech schools to cover the ugly spots of floor that appear from time to time.
