    That kind of fuckery sounds like something that would happen at my workplace.

        That really sucks.

        I've been trying to get VAC to give me a quote for the machine work on my engine, but I'm just not hearing back from them. Several emails and I even talked to the guy while I was at VAC getting the f30 inspected. I honestly thought it would be easier to get someone to start working on this block.

          The guy we fired back in April is still causing problems... about once a month... I just find things that something isn't right, on something that I know he worked on. For example,
          One of our products is a bolt-in roll bar for a C5 Corvette. The very first bar I built was built within my boss's personal car. I designed the roll bar using his car, built it, then took it out, so the bar could be "jigged". Meaning, I would build the fixture/ the model/ the negative of the roll bar, so that we could make copies of the design to sell.

          Except this was around the time the new guy was hired. So he was tasked with building the jig for the roll bar. He did, then we sent that first bar out to be powder coated. Got it back, then reinstalled it in my boss's car. Now we can started building duplicates.
          Fast forward, the kid goofs up here and there, and eventually gets canned.

          Yesterday, I was installing an updated roll bar design in my boss's car. We changed the design slightly, I built it on the jig using the existing mounting points, had it powder coated, and then traded the old bar out for the new one.
          Except the new one didn't fit. Turns out, at some point, the guy had "reinforced" the jig, using a cross beam between two mounting points, to ensure those points were rigid.. because they weren't rigid to begin with. Even though the whole point of a jig is to be a rigid foundation for all subsequent bars. But he addressed that later down the line.
          However, his botched reinforcement actually pushed/pulled the two mounting points away from each other. So now the reference points were an 1/8" off. Pretty important when things need to line up in the car, every time, for every customer.

          Good thing my boss had me build an updated design and install it in his car, otherwise I would have never known about this misalignment for every bar we would send out.

          I discover a problem like this about every month both before and after his termination earlier this year. Coining the phrase, "Dakotah strikes again!"

              We had a group chat at work called "Dammit Randy" for this very same reason... LOL

              The machine shop thing is something that really scares me too. I had a few trusted ones and now there are even less. The most recent one, Engine Machine Services, in Inglewood just closed up shop. I'm so glad this happened on the tail end of the Twin Spark engine build. I'm going to make sure that engine is bulletproof, because it might be the last engine I get to build...

                  My last job was terrible at hiring. They needed bodies so badly that they would hire basically anyone with qualifications directly out of school, and the pay was so shit that nobody else wanted the job. Probably 25% of guys coming in were near useless, and another 25% had their moments. Between the desperation and Union, I know of only one guy who was ever fired.

                  The last year I worked there, my job basically became "fix the fuckups" although to be fair, that was some of the best work I did there.
                  As backwards as this sounds, it was more chill after the customer had paid for the work once already.

                      If you're patient and stick with it you might one day be able to turn screwdrivers.
