Job Shop Workflow – Machining Award Medals!

Job shop production process for awards medals!

We’ll use a hybrid superglue + fixturing technique and SPOILER ALERT–it’s not enough to hold it. We’ll talk about why it failed, how it could have worked, and which workholding solution helped us complete the job.
