Why Precision Machining Matters - Lothar Horn

I am always pleased when I encounter a quote that neatly communicates an Idea that I firmly believe, but is expressed more clearly than I could.

Imagine my delight when I received a placard containing one of my favorite industry quotes today!

So happy to get this visual reminder of the importance of precision machining, and the tools that we use!

Read the Card!”

“Read the card!”

“What’s it say?

NO CAR RUNS, NO AIRCRAFT FLIES AND NO HIP REPLACEMENT IS FITTED BY A DOCTOR WITHOUT PRECISION TOOLS HAVING PREVIOUSLY BEEN IN USE.”

As precision machinist’s, we’re the people that make things.

Things that make a difference in everyone’s quality of life.

And who is is it that makes the tools that help us make that difference?

Why, precision toolmakers, of course.

A big thank you to Horn USA for sharing the placard with my favorite quote.

See you all at IMTS!

Milo, I have nothing to add to this. Per usual, your blog post is informative and thought provoking... inspirational, if you will.

I make this comment to tell you how much I look forward to your posts. I scan the blogs to be certain I don’t miss one. I appreciate your efforts to make these blog entries.

As I check this comment, it sounds a bit maudlin - not intended to be as such, just wanted you to know I am a faithful reader, even though not a steady commenter.
