Uhhhh I'm not sure how much Nortel would like that.  I could probably 
get away with punching a set or two but going into mass production would 
probably look a little suspicious.  I figure the first few would go like 

My Manager:  So Ryan what are you guys building today?
Me: uhhh they're retaining braces for the ISDN shelf assmbly on the 
    SNZY (pronounced sneezey, like the dwarf) SuperNode Frame
My Manager: good, very well then, snap some digital pictures once you 
            get them mounted in the frame
Me: umm ok

I also think they might catch on to me when I back up my Explorer to the 
load dock to pick up some "scrap" aluminum that's been powder coated.  
If I did it legally like with a PO and stuff I would have to charge like 
700 bucks each or something like that.  It takes a bit of moola to get 
the ole Trumph Minimatic 1000 punching machine in action. The labor 
costs alone are astronomical! :p
