Been a machinest for over 50 yrs., mechanical engineering school, been programing operating CNC equipment since 1975, currently (currently retired) but have the run of a plastics injection mold building shop with millions of dollars of CNC equipment. In fact the shop just spent 1/2 mil. on a Mazak 5 axis CNC mill and a new Mazak CNC lathe, we're really big on wire EDM machines.

Zip.

Right out of high school i worked for a Rambler dealer for 3yrs then i wrenched for my dad at his used car lot and detailed cars at his other business. I also repode cars for a bank for awhile with my dad till we got shot at one night (that was it for me!) Got a city job 1974 with the street division. Retired in 2007 as street division foreman for city of Wheeling, IL (33yrs) and was also a part time fireman for Wheeling for 12 yrs. Now i just manage the floor and check ID's at my buddys bar on Saturday nights when we have bands scheduled or fill in next door at his liquor store when he needs help.

I am an account rep for BowTech Archery. I set up pro-shops & keep them stocked w/ bows & manage several states & some international sales too. I love my job will probably die here before I retire. Hot rods are my true passion though.
