A machinist/engineer for 45 years with a complete machine and welding shop. I take in one of a kind, short run or full run machine projects. Have an idea to develop? I can carry you from rough idea to proof of concept prototype. NDA, no problem.

MIG or arc welding, aluminum welding, cast iron brazing, Babbitt pours, shaft straightening, gears, bearing fits, drill a simple hole or tight tolerance, anything that can be shipped.

BELOW ARE COMMENTS AND CONTACT INFO FROM PAST CLIENTS:
Nik is creative and experienced and went way beyond what I expected to get my generator up and running again. He can make anything. I would not hesitate to call on him again for that "impossible" job.

Nik Colyer is an exceptionally skilled, resourceful and competent associate. My experience in working with him on a large bronze Public Art project was excellent. He has the ability to be creative, meet deadlines, produce an exceptional quality product and go the extra mile to make sure it is outstanding. He is fair and a pleasure to work with.

Nik is fast and reliable. When the due date arrived the parts were at our front door. Give him a try.
John - Auburn, CA
Fast, creative, and capable. I brought Nik a weird project full of decisions, he jumped right in and made a huge difference. Collaborative and clear communication, all around great experience."

Nik's machining skills are second to none. He was able to machine a custom driveshaft for a very high end 1/5th scale RC car eliminating the bent shafts that it was previously plagued with. His work could be considered art. 100% recommend.

Nik has the tools and expertise to bring your idea to fruition. He listens to the concept before execution to get the best result.

We felt pretty lucky to have found Nik as a resource.
A business associate gave me his name while we were constructing a unique piece of equipment that needed some very specific parts and engineering, and of course we needed them right away.
The shop is amazing in its completeness for whatever task should arise.
He understood what the issues were right away and even made some helpful improvement suggestions.
Nic jumped right on the project and had it out to us in no time.
