I started my career in the steel industry working in an internal metallurgical lab at an Indiana steel mill. One of my tasks was testing samples to determine if flaws in parts were caused by mill errors or were due to problems in forging or milling. Inevitably, a case crossed my desk from Eaton Steel Bar, the company my family owns. I ran the required tests, but they didn't go Eaton Steel's way.
