Are you wanting a separate forum or just starting a thread.

Not 2nd shift here, just don't sleep well. Work...what ever, when ever it takes to get the job done.

I worked 3:30 to midnight for 6 years in the mid 1970s and 11p to 7a 10 years on the job I retired from. Now I sleep most nights.

I wish I worked day's. For the last 4 years I've been working 2:30pm -3/4am. Being a machinist is great but working these long hours is getting old. Its nice in the pockets but hard on the family.

That's what I was doing as well. The shift premium was good, but my wife finally bought me an electronic watch with the day of the week on it. Before that, I would get up around 6 or 7 pm and stumble through the house on the way to the bathroom and ask her if I had to work tonight? I got laid off in 1991 and went salary to keep my foot in the gate. I never had shift work again.

One thing about it. The last job I had before going to inspection was with some of the state of the art machines that were WONDERFUL. I did some really good work there.

Victor, yeah I'm doing a lot of tool and die work. Love the job and wouldn't mind getting into building my own receiver sometime. I mean lets be honest loving to shoot and being a machinist if I didn't build one it would be a waist of skills.
