Please remember that the computer age has given us so much to be thankful for, like affordable "precision" power tools and cad drawings.
I am a retired Journeyman Tool and Diemaker and learned the skills to program the CNC machines. CNC requires all of the "Fine Skills" of the trade including the limits of the cutting tolls involved.
CNC raises the quality of precision cutting and in 1/2 the time. As the point was well taken after the CNC then the "FINE" finish is completed by hand.
For production the CNC will keep the shop competitive with offshore labor costs.
May God bless all our craftsmen and Happy New Year.
