Without Them, US Planes Can't Take Off US Army Machine Shop



oh yeah she's outside and father I made my stroll fabricating I mean pretty much fabricating medals turning them into tools parts for aircraft a lot of welding jobs for odds and end stuff most of the stuff that we've gotten in this shop or tools for like powertrain or hydro or some maintenance maintenance tools getting aircraft parts like bushings which tend to go bad quite often those are just some of the things that we will use make to keep the aircraft going keep them up in the air if it goes directly on an aircraft nine times out of ten there are there's a lot of paperwork involved in it before we can ever make the part pretty much everybody around here its aviation its motor pool civilians it's a wide variety of people to come around here if we get bushings a lot of times it's an aircraft on the ground high priority thing they can't wait they don't have it any SS a or anything like that so we got to jump the gun and make it up for the aircraft so it can get off the ground tools there's been I can't even think how many tools and parts that we've made that have been on backorder for months because either one the manufacturers won't release some more too they're just that far on backorder and there's a lot of times it's more efficient for us to make it not just timewise but cost efficiency tune and some of the stuff that we've made we probably saved this unit and army a whole a lot of money on purchasing tools when we can just make it out of the stock that we have me personally I mean it we can keep an aircraft in the air and it complete missions upon missions upon missions I minutes for us being a back shop it doesn't seem like a whole lot but when you really look at the wider spectrum of it it's it's a big deal I mean some of the stuff that we do pays a huge contribution to the maintenance of aircraft hands down I think it's probably the hardest thing about working in here is the time consumption that some tools and some you know whatever parts that we make is a very very time consuming because without the machine shop without a welding shop a unit like this they would have some serious issues getting the parts or getting the tools that they need to keep their craft up or to maintain aircraft I know from my own personal perspective pride is a big thing and work just if the part don't come out right it's not going to work I'm you have to put a certain amount of pride into this work into this job to get a quality piece or you know to do quality work oh yeah he's outside the colors I made my shoulder fabricating I mean pretty much fabricating medals turning them into tools parts for aircraft a lot of welding jobs for odds and end stuff most of the stuff that we've gotten in this shop or tools for like powertrain or hydro or some maintenance maintenance tools getting aircraft parts like bushings which tend to go bad quite often those are just some of the things that we will use make to keep the aircraft going keep them up in the air if it goes directly on an aircraft nine times out of ten there are there's a lot of paperwork involved in it before we can ever make the part pretty much everybody around here its aviation it's oh yeah she's outside and father I made much shoulder fabricating I mean pretty much fabricating medals turning them into tools parts for aircraft a lot of welding jobs for odds and ends stuff most of the stuff that we've gotten in this shop or tools for like powertrain or hydro or some maintenance maintenance tools getting aircraft parts like bushings which tend to go bad quite often those are just some of the things that we will use make to keep the aircraft going keep them up in the air if it goes directly on an aircraft nine times out of ten there are there's a lot of paperwork involved in it before we can ever make the part pretty much everybody around here its aviation its motor pool civilians it's a wide variety of people to come around here if we get bushings a lot of times it's an aircraft on the ground high priority thing they can't wait they don't have it any SS a or anything like that so we got to jump the gun and make it up for the aircraft so it can get off the ground tools there's been I can't even think how many tools and parts that we've made that have been on backorder for months because either one the manufacturers won't release some more too they're just that far on backorder and a lot of times it's more efficient for us to make it not just timewise but cost efficiency
