If you don't like it brother don't do it, Life's to short to be doing something that makes you wish your life away.....Do what you have to there and pick up something elsewhere.

Personally, I currently work for a lot less than I'm worth..........but I'm worth it

Spoken like a true business owner. Felt the same way myself. If there was work to be done then get it done because there would always be something else come up tomorrow that need finished but may have to be put off because another project wasn't completed. When i worked for another man and I finished up a job I always went to him and asked what he needed. He knew I wanted work and always had a job to put me on. It does indeed lie within. Just go get it.

If it is that boring they should have you running more than one machine. In my shop if you're bored, you don't have enough to do. Most of my cnc guys are running two machines and sometimes doing manual ops during long cycle times. I don't try to kill my guys, (most of them would complain if they have boring down time), but just sitting on a stool watching the machine work isn't going to cut it.

I'm a machinist, but more along the lines of a field machinist/millwright. I usually work about 55-60 hours a week, but try my hardest not to work weekends as that is family time. If the money is there, take it while you can and save it incase it's not there at a later date.

OP, I think it's your attitude towards the job that has you wondering. If when you call yourself a "machinist", you have to meen "I'M A MACHINIST!! AND A DAMN GOOD ONE TOO!!"
How you look at things has alot to do with how you "see" things.

Here is a short boot to read.

Then like Caps says... MAN UP!!

I run a car dealership. I would kill to only work 55 hrs a week. I get to work at 8 and leave after 8 every damn day. Including some Sundays and every Saturday. Count your blessings.

My boss has an odd philosophy that he will argue till the sun goes down. He would rather have a man at every machine watching it run and getting great parts than have a guy running multiple machines and risk not getting the quality because of lack of focus. I could run multiple machines and not have an issue but it's what he wants.
I feel very fortunate to have a job that pays so well and allows such freedom. Hell, I pulled my dragster in next to my machine earlier this year and did a converter swap while my machine ran and the only thing the boss said was "grab someone if you need help getting the trans in and out". I admit I have it too good at times here but maybe I need to refocus and appreciate it more Thanks for all the advise guys. Have a good day.

I think y'all are right. I need to just suck it up and stay the extra time here even though it's sooooo boring most of the time.
What about having the boss move you around to different stuff throughout the day? It might help break up the monotony.

I would but he likes to have the same guy at the same machine to ensure quality work and trackability to each job. If I ran the place it would be different but he signs the checks so I play along for better or worse.
