It is an interesting career, I work for a company that makes the worlds largest turbines for Nuclear power plants. I had the opportunity to spend a year in Switzerland and Poland training for this job. These turbines weigh up to 250 tons and are roughly forty to fifty feet long. It is intimidating to cut on something worth 50 million dollars. I have to have my head in the game all the time. I've been machining 25years and it seems to be a dieing trade. I think all they teach now days is CNC.
Nothing wrong with CNC thats all I do now, but the young n's need to start with manual machines first
I'm sure thats gonna get a response
I'll keep my ears open for ya bud if I run across someone looking for work I'll give them your info.
