I'm in the UK and use machinists a fair bit. The one thing they all have in common is over running on lead times. I'm currently waiting for some steel channels to be machined which should have been completed a while ago but aren't done.
It sounds like it's just a problem with the suppliers I'm using. It's more than that - it's because there really is so much work for these companies that they are sinking in jobs. Not a bad thing. But if you're a grade A machinist then it's unlikely you're a grade A people manager.
