Weiss Machine

About Story Services Products Contact

Christian Weiss grew up in a machine shop. At an age when other children were playing outside in the grass, Christian was learning to make piles of nylon chips on a Hardinge speed lathe. This quickly evolved into a love - and a demonstrated talent - in the world of machining.

It was obvious that the generations of family machinists before him had clearly passed on the skill without even trying. All throughout his childhood, he spent countless hours a week in his father's shop learning manual machining on Hardinge hand-screws, engine lathes, and Bridgeports.

At the age of thirteen his father bought the shop's first CNC. It was at this time that the passion really became clear to Christian. Sitting out a week of school, Christian spent this time learning to program from the Applications Engineer that was brought in to train the shop on this new technology.
