Absolutely, about 5 years ago I failed out of college and was in a dead end job. I fell backwards into an apprenticeship for inside machining, and didn’t even know what it was. I have to say it is not only the most fun work I’ve ever done, the pay and benefits are great depending on where you go. I even have started my own hobby shop in my garage to do some side work. Extremely rewarding job and there are so many variations of “machinists” these days. Nobody knows everything about it and you will learn something new every day. If you’re gonna go for it, then go HARD! Go headfirst, learn on your own time. You have the ability to make yourself more valuable with each skill you acquire. Be respectful to the older guys and they will teach you some incredible things. I owe everything to this industry.
