Sam’s favorite midnight meal consisted of 7-11 chicken and metal chips stuck to his clothes.

One evening Sam found he was having difficulty breathing while downing his less preferred, but affordable brand of canned caffeine.

Alas, in the year of our lord 2021 a strange respiratory disease rendered Sam useless in the production shop which he had begun to call home.

Now penniless, Sam finds himself in an unfinished basement with nothing more than a 2006 Panasonic Tough book and two milling machines. A custom gantry mill someone else built and his very own Sherline 2000.

Armed with a Wells Fargo Credit Card and an inhaler, Sam has a choice. He can either continue making chips for himself or he can throw in the towel and work at the local Advanced Auto.

This is Sam’s choice.
