That would have gotten me fired at the last machinist job (only one actually). They had no sense of humor, you were not allowed to work on anything of yours. I did manage to build myself a couple of special tools while the boss was at his daily management meeting. Had to work on it 15 minutes at a time. Almost caught me once, still had the piece in the lathe when he popped back in. Asked me what I was doing, said I was building some tooling. Didn't lie and he wandered off. Close call, that one

Thats a tough shop...I have been at a couple places, never been a problem doing government jobs as long as the paying jobs were getting done.

I have seen shops where gov't work, seemed to be the majority of the work being done and the priority work being done.

When you work for the gov. we call those jobs homies, and homies always take priority.

They look like a bi-fold door hinge.

Hinge is what I was thinking too. Similar to the double swing doors walker builds.

Our weldor, who to date the best weldor I've ever known, got the boot for doing a little side job after hours. He had 100 times more clout than I ever did, an ex-navy Seal from the Vietnam days and a standing member in the cahoots club (in tight with the supervisor). Did him no good, the hangar manager saw him and that was that.
