Machine Shop Department HeadDepartment(s): Foundry, Machine Shop
Ian Wenck’s passion shines bright on The Crucible Machine Shop and beyond. “I stumbled into machining about 10 years ago and had a realization like, ‘Oh, that’s how it’s all made.’ Then I started saving up money and went out and bought my own mill and a lathe,” Ian shared. “I studied machining independently for five or six years, then went through the Diablo Valley College program.” Over a decade later, Ian has found his way back to our Machine Shop as our new Department Head. His passion for machining is contagious and his love of problem-solving makes him a perfect fit for the job.
