    I would bet they would hire someone with your history, it sounds like you know what your doing, because I don't know any of that!

    Alex,
    Interesting portfolio. I went to OSU too. I also do a lot of similar projects at my job. However, finding a job in the bike industry is overrated and under paid.
    Just curious, on some of your projects, it seems like you used a wire EDM when you could have simply milled the part. Specifically, the weld jig and the die.

    Welding jig: needed 0.0002 tolerance...not that easy with the mill, plus needed a good way to cut the two halves apart
    Press die: the material was tool steel and quite thick (2+inches If I remember) there would have been way too much tool flex if I used one with a small enough diameter for the corners yet long enough to get to the bottom.

    EDM is cool, but it's slow and expensive if you have to send it out. Most places won't have one.
    We use lots of tiny tools here at my job. You'd be surprised what you can make a .035 endmill do at 12000 rpm.

    I know it, thankfully we have our own. Using tiny endmills is always a fun adventure, but if cutting something harder than aluminum...tools of that size don't last that long, so instead of worrying about replacing a dull/broken tool, I choose the EDM :)

    You could, although not all the data is availible from the drawing picture, you really need the model file.
