About Our Company

EDM Machining Equipment

One thing that people notice when they come by our state-of-the-art shop, is that they are made to feel valued, rather than "just a number". We work on projects that range from small runs up to much higher volume ones, but each client is treated with the same high standards and care.

We've been in business since April of 1998. Business owner Lynette Palmer is an experienced machinist of over a decade. Her husband, veteran machinist Mark Palmer calls upon his 25 years of experience in the industry to carry on the tradition of quality craftsmanship.

Technology and tools may have changed over the years, but high standards of work and craftsmanship haven't.  We are specialists in EDM Machining including Wire Edm and Sinker Edm. We build a huge variety of molds for our clients, that their molders use for creating items.

Our industry experience of over 25 years means you can be assured of quality and commitment you would expect from a partner. We pride ourselves in personal service—a refreshing change in
today’s tough business environment. As your off-site partner, we’re here to serve your exacting machining requirements.

Our Story

Mark specializes in Tool & Die, as well as short and long run productions. He started his career at Weed Hopper of Utah assisting in building the engines of Ultra Light Aircraft, and from there he went to GSC Foundries and was the Steel Foundries Head Machinist for 10 plus years.

This is were Mark was given the nickname the "Magician", as he could often solve problems in the wax room, with results that were dramatic.   He worked on a very wide variety of parts building Molds, Straightening Fixtures, and Inspection Fixtures.

Some molds were for the private sector, but a lot were for aerospace companies, including Boeing, Lockheed, Bell & Howell, Woodward, Hamilton Strand even the US Government, one of the projects was for the Bradley Tank. They were building the mold for the shell cradles that went into the tanks.

In the summer of 1990 Mark went to work for Black Diamond LLC as the Tool Room Supervisor, (building mountain climbing equipment) and supervised 3-4 other machinists.  This was a new area of learning for Mark (and he greatly loves a good challenge) getting into mostly Forming Dies and Proto-Type Parts.  This is also where Mark went from running Manual Mills to CNC Machining.

Mark was also a great help to the R & D Department, where he would build their proto-type carabineers so that they could be tested and tried out in the field and evaluated by other R & D personnel before production ever started. Black Diamond is where Lynette learned to become a machine operator, and started learning to run CNC Machines.
