Company Offers High End Custom MachiningWM Machine started with manual milling in the corner of a barn but today it features the latest computer-automated equipment and has regular customers in a 200-mile radius. Customers include local businesses and farmers needing a replacement part no longer available from the OEM, as well as prototype components for new equipment.
“Willie Fisher started small in 1989, but in the last 4 years we have moved into higher end machining,” says Ezra Crawford, WM Machine. “We have the precision capability to make any customized part needed, from a replacement gear for a European tedder to prototype parts for the auto industry. We can do one-off pieces or work with a business looking for a high-volume production run.”
Crawford says the highly technical job shop offers more than just machining capability. Staff can do reverse engineering on a part or help design a new part.
“We can provide advice for the design of a new machine and the parts to build it,” says Crawford. “We don’t do fabrication. There are lots of shops to build the equipment. We want to be exceptionally good at the machining side.”
While most customers are within 50 miles, Crawford is open to working at a greater distance. Prospective customers can request a quote by describing the part and uploading drawings of it to the company website.
“The farther away a customer is, the more challenging it is to get approval of a piece,” says Crawford. “However, we have full internet access and our shop system works on software in the cloud. We can communicate via email or through other internet methods.”
