over the past 7 years, it has been very exciting, as well as exhausting at times. seeing a completely different side of the machining , from a small shop with common rolled steel and very short time cycles, to a large shop with alloy metals and multiple operations , has been eye opening and exciting to learn, so far it has been a highly learning experience . with more complex parts and operations also comes more problems and worries but I guess that's what helps you learn more.
