So I guess I'm supposed to tell everyone a little bit about me, so here goes nothing. I'm a 27 year old conventional machinist who works in the research and development department of a mining equipment manufacturer. I've been around the trade since i was born, made my first part on a lathe at 10. I graduated from Nashville Auto Diesel College with an Associates degree and graduated recently from WVU with a bachelors in Advertising (don't ask it was a phase). I've got a 2002 X that has never given me any trouble until recently, thats why i joined the forum. I love this car and just want to keep it alive as long as possible.

Welcome! Machining is a very cool trade. I'm a Draftsman and work with guys like you every day, I got half a mind to switch over to that side myself if I get the chance, I took a few courses in machining and enjoyed it greatly.

Welcome to the club!

Mining tech is a great field to be in, that's really awesome, and I bet a lot of those skills transfer great into a whole lot of fields. Hope you're able to find the help you need to get whatever issues you may be experiencing taken care of quickly!

Welcome to the club. I was born in Greenbrier county. Lived in NC since I was about 5. Good to see somebody from that area not just falling straight into being a miner. I have lots of family still there and pretty much all of them went straight to the mines out of high school.

Thanks guys. Yeah I love what I do, (mostly because it keeps me above ground!) Airmapper you should switch over, I'm 27, and the next youngest person I work with is the same age as my father. So I guess i'm the last of a dying breed haha.
