Damn that sucks.

On a positive note... he hasn't broke contact and went dark.

CNC tooling isn't cheap. Neither is learning how to set it up and run it.

14k of wrecked materials is a kick in the shorts though. Unless he has some remedy (by going after the "machinist" that wrecked them) that is a straight up loss. 

For a 1 or 2 person shop 14k of raw materials is the type of loss that may take years -if ever- to recover from.

Thanks for the update Counselor.

The loss in materials is big, but in comparison to the cost of buying a very good quality CNC mill ($50 To $100K or more) it’s a smaller concern. Replacing that material with material of the same quality is what’s going to hurt-with inflation, etc. The shop I’m in has purchased close to a dozen new machines in the last 2 years. If I could get the top dog here to cut free just one of the $250 million we’ll make in sales this year I know exactly where I’d send it. No questions asked.
