Biography of experience

I was born and raised on a prize-winning dairy farm 7mi south of Tillamook, Oregon till the age of 13, at which time my father’s health forced him into selling. He was a very hard working man, where I believe my good work ethics came from.

I graduated in 1974 from Tillamook High School involved in sports football, basketball and track. This is where I found my love for machining.

After high school I enrolled in Machine Tech at Mt Hood Community Collage.

I took all the shop, math and tech writing classes in 5 terms. Due to a lack of funds to continue never got my associates degree. Went back later for CNC programming and AutoCAD, and carry a 3.85 GPA.

After collage I worked for Viking Ind. As a welder until I was hired at Boeing of Portland.

I started in the hand finishing area (de-burring), for a month transferred to the gang drills for four months, radial drills for 6 months, then to the lathe area for 5yrs. I received my journeyman rating at the age of 23. There was no N.C. yet so most of time was on turret lathes, most all of the engine lathe work was tracer and about a 1 -yr. on a vertical Bullard turret. Then the first CNC came in and was put right next to that old belt drive Bullard and me. Well after seeing that run with no handles I just had to learn that one. It was a American Hustler horizontal bed with front and rear turrets, Allen Bradley 7320 C.N.C. With tape reader and 8” floppy drive. Cincinnati 10VC mills next about 6 months. (Heavy mills) retrofitted profiles with AB controls 3 and 6 spindle’s 12’x 20’ tables 737, 767 alum main landing gear beams and 747 flap tracks one year. Cramic 3-5 spindle gantry mill 757, 747 Titanium main landing gear beams about 1 yr. Transferred to the gear box division CNC lathes and mills 2,3,4,5, axis for two years. Promoted to set-up man CNC mills 1yr, lathes 5 years, transferred back to main lathe shop for manpower reasons for 1 year. This should give some insight to my experience and background.
