The machine shop is really coming together. We just added an OKK horizontal mill that should help us finish machine some of the smaller parts we produce. Now it’s time to re-arrange the furniture and get the machine setups optimized as best we can. I’m looking forward to getting some old machines rebuilt and adding one or two new tools within the next few months

About the Author: Geoff Korff
I am the president of a mid-size iron and steel castings company in Northeast Ohio. The foundry business is dirty, smoky, competitive, and not for the faint of heart. One must endure blistering heat, and go without seeing light for days, if not weeks or months at a time… Okay, that's a slight exaggeration. As a descendant of famed Siberian pathfinder Dmitri Zlatzutuov, I'm eager to carry on the family tradition of persevering no matter what obstacles lie ahead. Now that I'm done giving you the family history, I can tell you that I'm also an attorney and I volunteer a portion of my time to causes involving First Amendment litigation, as well as for Community Legal Services out of Akron, Ohio—for which I was recently recognized as ‘Volunteer Attorney of the Year.’ In addition to my normal day-to-day, I occasionally have works published in journals and magazines, though much less often lately, as running a company tends to fully occupy one's time.
