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.
Well I've been away for the last few days. But now I'm back at it again. Its going to be another long week. 40 parts need to be shipped by Friday at 3pm. At 2+ hours of run time ill be working 15's this week. But several pulses to look forward to. Tomorrow ill be picking up my rem 700 r5 in 308. Also should get 500 .22 &.30 bullets in the mail.
