"New to Us" equipment day is always exciting; it can be a brand new CNC Machine from Haas Automation, or an used Bridgeport knee mill retired by a local aerospace manufacturer, or a non-functional but repairable QVac thermal forming machine found on craigslist. We value freedom and believe in the power of consumer choices in a free market economy, therefore we do our best to buy US made equipment and equipment made in other democratic countries. If that means buying used rather than new, or skipping a few lunches, so be it.
