How a 3-month stint in a Gear Factory located in Backwater Texas Transformed my Outlook on Made in America? (In an unexpected way)

  • I didn’t know anyone
  • I constantly felt like fish out of water — that awkward newbie who was too quiet
  • I felt out of place — I lived in a diverse suburb now I stayed in small-town America

But I transformed from a Liberal No Details Boy to a Hands-On “Gear Smith”

During my first days in the factory, I was awkward, speechless, and struggled to converse with anyone.

The first-hand experience with a self-made founder is priceless exposure

The founder came from extremely rural India and he set up a shop that made the finest gears in the world.
