I have worked in some nice shops over the years.
Worked for a gunsmith before I could drive, I think I was about 12. Stayed there till I was graduated from high school. Nice lathe and mill in that shop.
Worked for a diesel mechanic for the four years I was in college. That was a nice shop. Rebuilt heads when we were slow.
I have a small shop on my farm. Nothing fancy, just big enough for a 100 horse loader tractor.
Dad has a much bigger shop, and since he retired I work up there on the big projects. He has a couple lathes, and we bought a valve grinder set up.
I just need a mill and some other stuff. Like a tig welder and a plasma cutter.
I average about 50,000 dollars worth of labor in both shops.
