Change of Address

About a month ago I was laid off from my position as a model maker at VisualCNC in Austin due to a serious slow-down in work, Which I personally believe could have been avoided by a little preemptive marketing.. But no matter, I was lucky enough to get laid off right before USM needed a replacement model maker in Houston.
So, USM is a great opportunity for me to expand my horizons a bit. I'll be in a similar situation as I was at Flyrite, They need someone that can set up and run a cnc operation from the ground up. Granted, They do have a couple of top rate manual machinist with some cnc experience but I'll be the master of my domain(er, corner). USM is just the kind of shop I like best, Varied. They have the facilities for cnc, welding, model making, painting, fdm rapid prototyping and engineering. They lack in the cad/cam and cnc arena but thats why its a good situation for me. I can help.
I've also had to move to Houston for this new job which has me leaving behind my home shop for awhile until I can find better facilities to conduct my research into composites.. And Em and I are taking a 2 week trip to Europe in the middle of May so I have little time for side projects at least for the time being. I will however be visiting as many automotive and scooter related operations as the itinerary will allow... pictures and posts pending.
