I need to get out of the states to where it is warm and I can sail my boat year round! I will set up and operate a machine shop along with offering my Engineering expertise!
I am currently a mechanical/electrical engineer working as the head Engineer at a machine shop. My company and dealings are with all MAJOR heavy industries (steel producing/finishing), Food & candies (such as ADM, Tootsie Roll, Dawn, etc.), petro-chemical (BP, Citgo, Behr Paints, etc.), Plastic Manufacturing (KW plastics and other injection molding companies), and Pharmaceutical companies.
Before moving into the engineering field I actually ran a full service machine shop for my father while attending school. I didn’t just manage it I also have heavy experience in running Lathes, (engine, vertical), drill presses (both radial arm and fixed), mills (vertical and horizontal), Boring mills (table and 6” floor), and various slotters, shappers, planners etc.
There is nothing that you put in front of me that I cannot reverse engineer, produce working drawings for, select the correct metallurgy for, and manufacture. Not only that but I can improve the design!
The rest of my family has moved away from where I work in North West Indiana and I think it is time for my wife (originally from England) and my 2-1/2 year old girl to try something new!
