Well on top of that Dave the CNC of today can compensate for tool wear & so
on. Many of them have the codes built in & much more user friendly & users do not
even need to memorize G-code any more. The operators just set the datum point
& load the tools. That why the cost of hiring operators to day is much less than the ole days.

No I don't understand why CNC machining is sent abroad any more. Japan has a manufacturing plant that uses just robots loading machines & does not even run
the lighting system most of the time to cut cost. Talk about efficient. No it's become
a programmers world for sure. There will always be a place for Tool makers as me,
but we are getting few & far between as we die off.
