Advantages of Our Services?

Some things can only be learned through experience!

Being a "Third Generation" Machinist, I have seen a drastic change in the way Molds and Patterns have been produced over the years.

Material types, Tooling, and CAD-CAM Softwares have changed as well.

Producing higher quality molds in a shorter time period is a MUST.

Bringing the best of all these Items together,

to create the end product you're looking for...

That's what we do!

Our Services

Our experience allows us the ability to extract more details surrounding your projects application and the end results you are looking to achieve.

The more details you have, the more informed decisions you can make in process and design of any project.


General and Custom Machining

With a wide range of NC, CNC, and Manual machines, we are able to machine a large variety of materials and sizes. As with most machine shops, we have our regular established customers, but if you have a need for a machine shop, give us a call or send us an email. We may be able to help... and if we can't... we may know someone who can.


Ability to Aid in Product Developement

Have a product you want to produce but not sure where to start? We pride ourselves on our Honesty. With our experience across multiple fields and industries, we have been able to provide recomendations based on product design, product material and desired product quantity. Whether it's an email file, a sketch on a napkin, or just a thought that hasn't made it's way completely out of your head yet, we may be able to help point you in the right direction.


CAD -CAM Software

We all know that pencil drawings made with a drafting board and "T" square are a thing of the past. Electronic transfer of files and drawings as well as communication either by Phone or Email is a Must in the world of today.

We use the latest versions of Solidworks and Surfcam, in order to accomplish your goals and generate the product you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are your Hours of Operation?

At the present time, our hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 6:00am to 2:30pm CMT

We have been known to work overtime when needed and even work a Saturday every once in a while.


I see "Hydraulics" in your name, do you work on or build Hydraulic Systems?

When our company first started, we machined pump housings, motor housings and turned shafts for the Hydraulics Industries. The machine shop as a whole has seen many changes over the years.

Companies purchased other companies, companies added in-house machine shops or acquired machine shops to attend to their specific needs.

Many years ago we decided to focus on what we did best, and pulled away from that Industry. We still do some work for Hydraulic related companies but that is not our main focus.

Since our name was already established, we didn't feel that it was in our best interest to change it.


What does a Mold cost?

The cost of a Mold varies depending upon what you want to accomplish. Quantity, Product Material, and Product Design all influence the mold build. We can help guide you in the right direction depending upon your needs.


Do you do Automotive Machining?

Even though we could perform Automotive Machining, we choose not to. Automotive Machine shops are set up with specific machines to form specific tasks. Jigs for Cylinder Head machining, Line Boring for cam and crank bearings, as well as Rotor and Drum turning all use specific machines design for that specific job or task. It would not be feasable for us to machine your Automotive Parts...


Are you Hiring?

Short answer is - We are always taking applications. We try to maintain a consistant work force and hire only when needed. On occasion we hire for Temporary Positions or Part-Time Positions, even then we strive to create a Full-Time position for that employee when possible.


Are you Locally Owned and Operated?

Yes! We have one location which is located on the Fultondale - Gardendale city line on Hwy 31 in Alabama. We are located approximately 10 minutes North of Birmingham, Just off of I 65 which makes us convenient and easy to find.

Even though we have one owner, we support our local community and have expanded multiple times in the same location.
