  This is the retirement gift that I received from General Electric Aircraft Engines in Rutland, Vermont in May of 2003 where I had worked for 37 years. It is about 28 inches long, and the neck is solid steel which makes it quite heavy. The cover plate is made from a piece of 1/8" thick steel, and was made with a Wire EDM machine. This was made entirely in the shop by numerous workers on three different shifts. I sure am proud of it ! I would hate to think of what this cost the company. At the time, the "Shop Cost" Which was used to bill GE's customers (includes overhead, labor, etc) was around a hundred dollars an hour. And you thought Scheerhorns were expensive !
