I machine most of the components and tooling for the machines we build.

These are just random pictures of parts Ive made.
@kozal01 Awesome. That's cool looking. Look like some engineering work is involved and look interesting. Good pictures too and up close pictures of the machinery. Thanks

@ns_redneck Cool. Thanks. Gotta make sure trucks keep their exhaust systems in check and not put out so much fumes.

Moving dirt

Plowing snow

Vacuuming grain

Fixing pens

Keeping up with problems as they happen

And most of all, keeping track of employees
@XtraLargeTall Wow...Look like you have a lot to do. And a lot of various roles too. That is cool. And how did the driver turn his truck over? Is it one of your trucks? Thanks for sharing.

It's one of ours, we're not really sure how he managed to do that as he was on fairly flat ground.

@XtraLargeTall Wow...Yeah no doubt, on flat ground and all. I would be pissed about that. And on a dry and sunny day.

@LaBalaDePlata Yeah they look like they would be. They look interesting. I like stuff like that.

Yeah it pays good money. Routing, switching, IA and security does too. The hot topic in IT now days is cloud computing, big data, virtualization, developers, and enterprise software. Programming wasn't my strong points, so I stick to the network side of the house.
