        Hi,
        Kinda a late response, I didn't know I had questions until I checked my notifications. I started my company, Tromblay Tool LLC with my brother in 2001 and we specialize in custom machining, welding, design and now metal shaping. We are a small shop with my brother Jim and I and our apprentice machinist, Tony. We are a job shop, so we do a lot of repair, prototype and design work for many different industries, including medical, food and aerospace. Do to my aviation back ground of being a pilot and a A&P IA mechanic we tend to specialize in aircraft work. Out of high school I was offered a Machinist Apprenticeship and in time I became a Journeyman. Due to the company I was working for at that time, I also had to become a welder. I had an interest in metal shaping and with our apprentice running equipment now, it allowed me to pursue a new passion. I metal shape, repair and replacement components for aircraft, so all of my work is in aluminum and a little bit of stainless steel.
        The shop is equipped with a full line of CNC and well as manual machines and for sheet metal tools I use a Pullmax, English Wheel, CP plainsh hammer, Erco shrinker as well as the normal brakes, bead rollers and shears. I also TIG and Gas weld with Oxy/Hydrogen fuel.
        A small sample of parts that I make.

        We ship parts all the time, so there is a lot more than these few photos. I'm on a continual quest to perfect my craft and become a better craftsman at what I do.
