Dear Reader,

You may not know this, but I’m a tool & die maker. I learned the trade from my father. Beginning in my early teens, he taught me precision metalworking while I worked at his twelve-man tool & die shop in Southern California. I helped him make dies that trimmed Barbie’s eyelashes and hair (toymaker Mattel was just down the street). Other dies made helicopter parts destined for Vietnam. We made parts that flew on Apollo space capsules. And so much more, all precision machined, all productive.

Today, Q-Mark has amazing machinists who are far more skilled than I. Combined, we have so much manufacturing know-how that we can produce just about anything.

Some of these professionals will be in our booth #135501 at IMTS in Chicago, September 10-15. Please stop by. You can see all the things we make, and meet the people who make them. It would be a privilege to greet you, and personally show you around.

Hope to see you at the show!
