Imagine a 30+ year old proven machine design with expiring patents and a manufacturer firmly entrenched in the food industry. Most people would see much opportunity there, But Bill Young of Young and Associates, Inc. is definitely NOT most people. Bill took this old workhorse of the food forming industry and brought it into the 21st century with his own ideas and designs.
UPDATE: I just spent a week with the folks from Young &
Associates in an intensive training program ran by Brian. He'd
make a good drill sergeant, but we learned one helluva lot about
the machines! Thanks Brian! ( P.S. I enjoyed the smelt,
now it's my treat for calf fries on your next trip down!)

Hunting, Video Productions, and some great folks to work with. They will be helping with the upcoming "Shopdawg Video Productions". Oops.. wasn't supposed to mention that yet. Don't tell anyone, ok?
McMaster-Carr is a legend in the industrial community. Those big yellow catalogs have everything known to man (or so it seems). Ask them for a catalog, and they will tell you "No". They are numbered, and the latest is up to 112 (I think). The catalogs sell on EBay from $5.00 to over $70.00.
It's NASA, What else can you say?
Manufacturing companies do not come more diverse than the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company. I worked for this company for over 20 years, and much of my love for anything technical came from here.
I'm not sure why, but due to overwhelming demand, here's the video of an
ad-hoc project to put a camera on an RC airplane.
It wasn't even a real project. Just one of those things that happened
to come about. I was working on the RC plane in the shop while Chris was
working on his new wireless camera.. "HEY!.. Let's rubber-band that
thing on top of the wing and see what happens!"... The rest it history.
