    My machine shop

    Here are some photos of my machine shop Midwest Welding & Drive. We primarily specialize in drive shaft and pto work whether it be repairing old units to building new. We also do a lot of machining and fabrication work...obviously. Another venture we have decided to take is line boring. Just ordered a new portable line boring setup the other day so we can repair just about any hole that has a pin for a pivot(pay loaders, excavators, skid steers, etc...)

    Its not much, but its a start. I would really like to get rid of some of this archaic equipment soon and start buying newer CNC stuff. But I'm making due with this for now. It all works, just takes a little more finesse than just pushing a button and letting a computer do the work.

    Man, you have allot tied up in that, but nice tooling can make your day, and bring in the cash. Nice to see that market taken over by someone with organization and can get things done. Nothing worse than that fucking mess at Thurlow's and waiting 2 months for a fucking driveshaft!
