MTDC Fabrication Shop

Any Forest Service unit that needs to have a specialized tool or piece of equipment fabricated should contact the MTDC staff. The center has a 17,000-square-foot prototype fabrication shop that includes machine tools such as mills, lathes, drill presses, and welding and wood fabrication equipment, and a paint booth that can accommodate medium-sized vehicles.

More importantly, the shop’s staff — Mike Huey, Chuck Harding, and Scott Gilmour —have years of experience in metal fabrication, welding and machining, engine modification, and repair. Their innovative ideas and ability to work closely with the center’s engineers have proven invaluable.
