I have to disagree with the comment of CNC being the heart of the machinist trade, there are alot people that goto school for cnc, graduate, and still can't run a manual lathe, mill etc. If it doesn't come with a computer and keyboard they're completely lost. There are plenty of shops, and shipyards out there that still want manual machinists. Manual Machining is a art and requires a certain personality, which fortunaly a CNC Machine doesn't have.
That being said, I live in North Carolina, and work in Virginia, does anyone know of any places in South Carolina seeking a Inside Machinist? I have a little over 15 years experience Manual, and some minor CNC Mazatrol/Mazak QT25, I have run just about every manual piece of equipment around, Largest Lathe so far 64" Swing.I Can do build up Flame Spray Repair, I have experience grind machining thermal coatings. I prefer job shop enviroments, fast turn around jobs, high volumes of work. Looking for a company that may have the option of helping with relocation, Yes I do have references.
