I am seriously worried about the future of the trade/business if we can't get qualified people or find people with the aptitude to train. Or the willingness to work....

And also come in every day......
Just something to think about: A good manual machinist can set up and touch off tools, especially if it's already programmed. It's not a big jump to cnc when the program is already written. Just a thought. I understand it's a temporary job, but showing a manual machinist how to do that may be better than waiting on a cnc guy.
