About UsWelcome to my little web site.
Heres a little information on me.
My name is Craig. Ive been in the CNC and manual machining industry for a little over 27 years now and still at it. If it can be machined, welded or ground I have probably worked with it or something very similar. Ive worked in many shops over the years. Several of them I served as the Foreman or production supervisor. Ive recently started my own machine shop which is now open for business. Ive done everything from production runs to prototyping and all that falls in between. I specialize in the prototyping or one off parts and reverse engineering. Whether its something newly designed or a repair part for something no longer in production I can probably help. Ive made parts for tractors, combines, automobiles, motorcycles and much more.
Some of the companies Ive made parts for include. US govt., ADM, Alcoa, Rockwell, Carlon, Caterpillar, Ralston Purina, LeFebure, Vector Corp, IBM, John Deere, Crystal Group, Naval Air research, and even NASA. Just to name a few.
My hobbies arent exempt from my tinkering tendencies either. Those are primarily firearms and radio control aircraft. Which include large scale aerobatic planes and helicopters. I currently have an FFL dealers license and build custom 1911 based pistols for customers. I also do firearms repair and customizing of all makes and models. But my primary focus is machining.
I pride myself on the quality of work I do. Because when it comes down to it. My reputation is dependent on it. So if you have some project that needs some machining or welding give me a try. You can also do a google search on me (cforcht) if you like. Im sure youll find plenty of information on me and what I do.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this.
