well after ten years are trying something new, no longer is the total goal of the website to promote
sale of materials.  When we started back in 1997 and put our first materials up on eBay in 1998, 
we were alone. There was a number of sellers promoting some machining items
but we were the only one that specifically dealt in recycling materials.  
Today while it is still one of the elements of our business, it is of less importance than
the actual art of working materials. 

We are now offering machining services.  If you have something you desire in the way of machining, 
please send us an email for quote and discuss the specifics: sales@machinist-materials.com

We are very much like our customers, we like to build things and turn
ideas into reality. Our interests and products range from a new knob for the spaghetti pot, to 
helping a friend build a remote vehicle to hunt for land mines, a remnant and scourge of modern warfare. 

So WELCOME, come look around, see what you can see,
offer what you think might be useful, criticize, use whatever you want, there are some good tables, and we will be publishing some articles about customer and personal projects, reviewing some items
and sharing those techniques and tools that we have found valuable.
It is all about community.
