Jon Baklund, owner of Baklund R&D, paints the picture of life in the CNC job shop. The customer base is widely varied, and each customer has unique requirements. Jon's crew of makers works every day on different challenges. Examples include machined or 3D printed pieces that will aid a surgeon, or go to Mars.
Jon doesn't necessarily hire machinists; in fact, he makes makers! Work ethic, punctuality, and good attitude is the combination that Jon looks for - the rest, he and his crew of makers will teach.
