Cutter InnovationsAre you looking for a precision machine shop to make aerospace parts or other precise machinery? Have you tried a lot of machine shops but you just can’t find the one that’s right for you, or have you looked and looked but nothing quite meets your specifications. It may be hard to find the precision machine shop that is perfect for you, but with a few simple steps, you should be able to find the perfect shop for you.

Start by asking people who know what they’re talking about. If you need precisely machined parts, then you probably know other people in your area who need similar types of parts, too. Ask them where they go when they need to have these parts machined. If they aren’t willing to tell you, that is their choice, but the truth is that most business owners understand that sharing information like this will help them in the long run.

You can also look for reviews online. Many precision machine shops will have reviews available online and all you need to do to find them is do a simple Google search. You may also search for reviews directly on the shop’s website, though you may want to note that most businesses won’t post negative reviews. This can make it look like all of the reviews are positive, rather than like there is a balance of good ones and bad ones. On the other hand, many people will only leave reviews when they are unhappy with the service they’ve received. This can make reviews on third-party sites seem more negative than they really are.

Check out any precision machine shop before you decide whether or not you want to work with them. Ask them all of the questions that you need to ask to make sure that they know what you’re doing and can produce exactly what you need. If you want to, talk to the machinists themselves, as well as to the management. This can give you a sense for what they would be like to actually work with and whether you would actually want to sign a contract with them.

You’ll also want to get a quote from any precision machine shop before you agree to anything. You can even get quotes from several shops, just to ensure that you’re getting the very best deal possible. You should be able to get your quote for free. If the shop wants money for it, you may need to look elsewhere unless that is the industry standard in your area. Compare the quotes when you have them. Make sure that they all include the same things so that what you are comparing is equal.

At Cutter Innovations, we would be happy to work with you on all of your precision machining needs. We will help you through the process and our expert machinists will aid you in getting exactly the parts that you need. We’ll give you a quote and talk to you about the process, then let you decide what you need to do.
