About Keith Fenner

I'm Keith Fenner and this is my Job Shop. Join me as I perform old school repair jobs by drilling, milling, grinding, welding, plasma cutting, broaching and metalworking on a lathe. At Turn Wright Machine Works, we walk the talk and getter done!

After school, I started my career in naval ship repair as an outside machinist working as a civilian contractor at the helper level. 13.5 years later I had worked on almost every navy vessel in San Diego's harbor, 32nd Street, North Island and Point Loma. I added the classification of an inside machinist to my cap, and the capability of holding any personnel level in the work force.

After that I worked for two small companies that I helped to grow. In return, I gained my welding and shafting experience, before eventually taking a leave of absence to start my own business in 1994 - Turn Wright Machine Works - homesteading my talents here on Cape Cod.

About BasementShopGuy 

My name is Brad. I'm from eastern Pennsylvania. My 3 passions in life are shop work, music and fishing. Shop work is the focus of this channel. Throughout my high school years, I was grooming myself to become a machinist, but once I graduated, I decided to work with my father and became a carpenter. A decision that I've regretted, since. My current career is with computers and IT. When I'm not working, I'm down in my home machine shop making improvements or fixing up some old machinery, in the hopes to do some work on the side. The videos on this channel will thrust me into the spotlight chronicle my journey - as I build up my shop and try to get my first jobs. Come along with me for the ride. Hope you enjoy them!
