Lighthouse Machinist Harry Pike Speaks at Tech Expo 2009

Lighthouse machinist Harry Pike attended and was a feature speaker at Tech Expo 2009 presented by Cimtech, held at the Museum of Flight on August 5th 2009. Harry spoke about his work at the Lighthouse, and the audience watched a video that showed him in action, performing set-up on and operating an OKUMA computer numeric controlled (CNC) milling machine as a machinist who is blind. The audience consisted of representatives from aerospace manufacturers (including programmers, machinists, design engineers, and managers) and they were amazed! Way to go, Harry!
