About the Author
I've been in the machine tool related industry now for about 14 years. I've always enjoyed learning everything I can and always putting forth the extra effort and going that extra mile for the customer. Always trying to improve my knowledge and give customers the confidence in my work and skills. Knowing what questions to ask, how to analyze the problem, and troubleshoot a machine properly is key to gaining your customers support. I make an effort to always take the extra time to learn what, why and how it happened. All of which is critical to resolving a problem quickly and efficiently.
