The machine shop is filled with a wide variety of shop equipment. Complex machinery such as a CNC mill and lathe facilitates production of equipment, helping us meet increased demand from partner ministries. Operated and maintained by only a handful of personnel, these machines free up time for other tasks while simultaneously boosting precision, reliability and minimizing production costs.
The machine shop enables production of specialized FM antennas, mechanical parts for in-house low-power shortwave transmitter production, and parts assembly for clean water projects. In addition, it allows us to design, create and test different versions of water pumps to produce the most cost-effective model for our clean water ministry partners. The shop even allows SonSet Solutions to fulfill unique requests such as building a high-power Radio Frequency (RF) switch for shortwave gospel broadcasting in Guam.
Manufacturing Manager Stephen Peacock notes that his greatest joy is seeing FM antennas go out to numerous ministry partners, equipping them with the tools they need to reach their people with the gospel.
