The machine shop where most of the major components are made for cars, construction equipment and electronic devices, had remained almost unchanged for nearly fifty years previous to the end of the last decade. Everything from Axis machining equipment, to the uniforms that the workers used had not seen much innovation. However, at the end of the 90’s when machine industry giants began noticing that the machine shops from other countries were starting to take over the industry, they released that changes and advancements had to be made in order to avoid losing all of their worldwide market share in the machining industry. We have reviewed the practices of a major machine shop,, from the late 90’s and the current time, in order to illustrate some of the major changes that have taken place in the machining industry over the past decade. People who want to learn even more about modern machining processes after reading this article should check out the books on the machining industry which can be found at most local libraries.

One of the most basic and yet important changes that has happened in the last decade within the machining industry has been the expansion of machining shops to include more machines and different machining processes in a single location. It used to be that in order to manufacture something as simple as a car axel, one machine shop would have to begin the process in its shop for the cutting and molding of the metal, the piece would then be sent to another shop where it would be polished and heat treated to prevent rusting. Finally, the piece could be sent to the car maker for use in their automobiles. The fact that there were so many different places needed to perform the basic manufacturing of parts was a major reason for the lack of production in the machining industry during the last decade. Now, machine shops that produce a part usually do so from the first to last step. A single machine shop which is able to produce parts on its own has helped beef up production by a huge amount, and helped to keep machining jobs in this country.

Another big change that you can see in a modern machining shop is the number of workers in the machine shop at once. The average, medium sized machine shop used to have around fifty workers on shift at any given time. Workers were needed for all sorts of things from operating machines, to making repairs on different devices and loading machines with raw materials that they needed to make their parts. Today however, a large machining operation might only have ten or fifteen workers on shift at any given time. In order to keep up with international competition, machine shop owners new they would have to improve production, while also reducing labor. Many of the machine shop processes which required humans in the past are now done totally by machines. The reduction of human labor has made working in a machine shop safer, as well as making machine shops more profitable.



If you are in the market for custom windows right now then there are a number of things you should and shouldn’t do in order to make sure you get the best custom windows at the best price. Since the end of the year is the most popular time for people to buy new windows, we have constructed this brief guide of dos and don’ts when it comes to shopping for new window coverings. The following guide is intended to be used by window shoppers in the Colorado area, since that is where we have conducted our research. For people seeking custom windows in other areas of the country, we recommend that they use another source of information to guide them on their purchases.

The first thing that we recommend when it comes to buying custom windows is to buy online. People shopping for custom window shouldn’t buy from actual shops because they will end up paying more for the same windows than they would pay online. Windows in stores are actually a way that window companies have of demonstrating their window models to customers who want to see the windows in person, but the actual store location has ceased being a real channel for selling window coverings for almost ten years now. Major online widow sellers like, explain that there are just too many extra costs involved in selling out of a shop location anymore, and that all major windows makers have shifted to online sales by now. Windows are an especially hard item to keep stocked in shops because of their size. Even a large sales space can only allow for a few dozen window models to be on display at once, whereas an online window shop usually has a massive warehouse where they keep their windows, and can have hundreds of different models in stock at once.

Another thing that people should do when investing in replacement windows is to get fiberglass windows to replace traditional glass windows. A recent study conducted this last spring concluded that one out of every five household injuries can be attributed to broken glass, which makes windows the largest single course of injury to homeowners today. Luckily, there are now fiberglass windows which dramatically reduce the risk of being injured by broken glass in the home.  New homes being made right now don’t even use traditional glass because it is considered a safety risk these days, and fiberglass has other advantages besides better safety. Fiberglass windows don’t scratch like traditional glass windows, so they last way longer. Fiber glass windows can be cleaned using a simple rag and glass cleaner, and the transparency of the glass will not be affected, making it possible for people to clean their own windows without risking the glass turning foggy and unsightly. There are few window sellers that still sell traditional glass windows, but people should take care to avoid buying from those dealers. There is no reason not to by fiberglass windows for your next replacement window, and anything else would be a waste of money.


The medical marijuana industry is growing so fast that it can be almost impossible to keep track of. During the last five years the amount of medical marijuana produced in this country has yet to meet the demand the public has for the cannabis, and as each year passes, more and more is being learned about what problems we can treat using cannabis.

When approached correctly, a person could make a lot of money in the medical marijuana industry.

You can’t do anything in the medical marijuana industry if you don’t have the proper licenses to start with. Many people have started making and selling medical CBD pills before they took care of all the paper work, and it has cost them their shot at creating a success medical marijuana company. The law may punish people that produce products made for human consumption without the proper documents by banning them for life from the industry. Each state requires different paperwork before a person can start operating a medical cannabis facility, so we recommend that each person check with a local lawyer ahead of time and find out everything they might need to get started.

No matter how you approach the medical cannabis market, you won’t get anywhere unless you have a quality product. If you are planning on making your own cannabis oil, you will need time to take a course in growing and harvesting cannabis. Cannabis production is somewhat delicate in nature, and a period of trial and error is usually required before the right formula can be found for the production of the perfect cannabis. On the other hand, if you are planning to purchase your cannabis from a grower, there are some other things to keep in mind. Growers are under a lot of pressure to produce more and more cannabis right now, so it could be tricky finding a reliable grower that can take on new work. You must also be careful with cannabis growers who take shortcuts with their plants in order to produce more products as fast as possible. Rushed growers make for less than excellent cannabis products. Finally, it will be your responsibility to make sure that whoever you buy from has all of the legal paperwork required to make their sales valid. In most states the responsibility to make sure all sales are legal from the seed to the store, fall on the person selling to the public. Make sure all your cannabis growing partners are operating correctly or it could fall on your shoulders.
