On Apr 29, 2017 an EF3 tornado destroyed our home and my shop. This is the page I put up while I was closed.
dumpsterCNC is temporarily closed. A tornado destroyed our home and my shop tonight (apr 29, 2017), but we are all ok as we left in time.
I don't know when I'll be able to get going again, but I'll update here.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
Update 4/30/17 Assessed the damage and salvaged as much as we could. Will hit it hard this week when the calvary shows up. (my brothers).
Update 5/3/17 We got most of my equipment out, and with some repair work and rewiring, should be able to save them (yay!).
Thanks to all of you for your good wishes, we feel so lucky we got out in time. Turns out we left the house 22 mins before it hit.
Our 2 dogs and 2 cats rode it out inside the house and survived with no injuries... boy do they have a story to tell. :)
Update 5/10/17 Still digging out and cleaning up. This will take a while...
Update 5/20/17 Hopefully it won't be much longer until I'm back up, still really busy with clean-up and am in the process of buying a new house. Maybe a week or two.
Update 6/04/17 We're closing on the new house/shop on Tuesday, 6/6/17. I will open back up after the move. I do have the machines running in a temporary location, so if you have urgent needs, email me and I can let you know if I can make the order. I am still missing some of the tooling, fixtures, test screws, etc. as you can imagine after being hit by an F3 tornado... Which I named "Mustang Sally".
Update 6/11/17 I'm Back!
My 20'x36' shop
Our house (carport was flattened) the pine trees in the background were ~50ft tall.
The small church behind our place, there was a parsonage next to it, a large part of it is in our pond.
