Hey you own any of this stuff free and clear?
Still waiting for that proof of purchase on the Abene so we can get that deal moving.
It's been a week since I requested it...what is the holdup?
Too busy posting crap on Usenet?

TMT-just quit already. If Mark provided proof of ownership or proof that he can legally sell the Abene mill you wouldn't buy it anyway. I don't say this in defense of Mark, I think he's an ass. But your posts are getting real tiresome so just quit already and post something about metalworking please. Eric

I have a slightly newer Abene machine - they are really nice - horizontal and vertical mill in one machine, heavy, precise - if the HP is like mine, it's 6 on the spindle, 2 on the ways. Swiss made - the one downside is no quill that you can lower to use as a drill press or to get a better feel when drilling. I paid 3X that price and don't regret it.

'Sorry to hear that, Winston. I'm having the busiest work schedule I've had in about five years -- all manufacturing and machine-tool business, no medical right now.

You are a bright spot. Perhaps machine work is a special category, but most folks are struggling. All I need to do is count the empty houses and stores as I drive aound. Hang on for the inflation.

It does vary somewhat by region, and a great deal with the type of work one does. But there's another factor that isn't talked about much and it applies in spades to machine shops and related business.
Having been reporting on the business for 35 years, I see something going on that always happens to a smaller degree in normal upturns and downturns. When things turn down, the weaker players drop like flies. This always happens. When there is so much business that it's overflowing the strong shops, in a big upturn, at least a quarter, and probably more. of the shops have no business being *in* business. They're undercapitalized, poorly managed, and/or loaded with obsolete equipment that isn't productive enough to compete. But they can make a buck when everything is going their way.
When the cycle turns down and after they drop off, the strong ones hang on. Then when there's another upturn, those stronger shops start getting busy as hell. We're hearing comments to that effect from some of the better ones who have been posting here. It isn't every category, and it isn't everywhere, but there are shops out there now who can hardly keep up with the work, and who can't find enough qualified employees to handle what they have.
My work has a small amount of that phenomenon in it, and I've started to feel it over the last few months. All of my work now is coming out of Chicago, from four different clients.

I saw a sign yesterday, for a 'Lathe or mill operator' in downtown Ocala. it was in front of an employment agency, so I don't know who is offering the job.

Seems to be a lot of maintenance and 1-25 quantity type of work, I am busy, but, it doesnt take much to make 1 guy busy, or even overwhelmed, for that matter. I have been trying to keep up, after the junior weenie that was my "apprentice", was hired by the shop next door while working there part time, (another story) / bailed out on me because he "couldnt hang", yeah, I'm pissed, both at the kid for bailing out on challenging work and going to a turning shop that only makes bearing races, and the guy next door that I trusted, "one of these days Alice, one of these days". So, I am at the 'puter, 3:13 in the morning, been at it since 1:30am, finishing programs that need to run in the morning. Almost burned out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I have, right now, as much work as I can handle. Just started two new electronic product designs, both to be manufactured in the US. In the past couple of months, we've done major upgrades on two office networks, and have quotes out on three more.

Short form: California has been losing business a long time. Between 2000 and 2008 California lost more jobs than startups created. But since then, things have gotten worse. Between high taxes, high regulations, and lawsuits over minor infractions of California's complex laws and regulations - why would any sane person want to start,expand, or continue a business in California?

In January, Second Son started as a temporary labourer at a small stamping plant. At the time they were working single shift. In July, they went to a second shift and put him on their own pay role. Now he has been informed that they want their best three operators assigned one per shift, and since he has the lowest seniority, he gets third choice - day shift. Gerry :-)} London, Canada

"Republican presidential candidates Rick Perry and Mitt Romney both claim President Obama said that "Americans are lazy." He didn't. To the contrary, Obama has consistently and repeatedly praised American workers as the "most productive in the world," a bit of boosterism he has repeated dozens of times. His recent words =97 "we've been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades" =97 actually referred to collective efforts to promote foreign investment in the U.S., and not to American workers or voters as individuals. Perry and Romney simply rip those words out of their context in order to mislead."

From the crazy ass Republicans, not conservatives. Most Republicans wouldn't know what a conservative is if he kicked them in the ass.
On Eric Hoffer's scale they are reactionaries, pure and simple. There is nothing, nothing, conservative about that losing position.
Sadly, you may be right. The Rs are shouting their mantras to each other and turning off the greater electorate that will decide next November.

I'm a conservative. Too bad I don't have a party. It's been hijacked by hate filled morons IMHO that wouldn't recognize a conservative if he kicked them in the a**.

Well no where did I mention that word. That term and anything that describes the left are long gone. This is whole new world and not many can or are willing to face that fact. The idea that America is the greatest nation on the planet has fallen by the side when a small band of who ever they are can do so much to change everything. I have voted republican in the past and would do so again if they were not so driven to decisiveness and would rather seen America fail then let someone else run things for a while. Just look at the fools drool over Obama not being born in the USA and being a Muslim and everything else they have tried to say just to bring him down.
I am not in favor of dismantling SS or any of the other social programs or willing to lay off teachers and fire fighters and watch everything around turn to shambles if that is what it means to be a conservative.
