"The move" Turn Wright Machine Works

Hello, my name is Keith Fenner, a Job Shop Machinist / Welder that in the course of my 45 years of experience, have acquired many other talents along the way. My machinist career started with naval ship repair as a civilian contractor back in 1975 continuing for 15 years, after which, while helping other smaller job shops grow towards their goal, I broadened my career by learning key trade specialties. In 1994 I created Turn Wright Machine Works, started with the shop location at 60 Lovells lane, Marston’s mills, then in 1997, I moved the shop to 791 Main Street West Dennis, where I continued to provide a unique service to the cape and Islands. My years of experience cater to all craftsman of repair, fabrication and manufacture, with specialties like marine propulsion, performed with workmanship expectations that supersede the national boat standards, along with the same workmanship attention to other non-marine related projects which has built trust and friendship by my customers, beyond the services rendered.


 I am now, sole owner of Turn Wright Machine Works, by divorce, after 26 years; I feel blessed, because I have a chance to continue on with the physical machines, tooling and branding, that were associated with Turn Wright Machine Works. Because of the divorce, the property is going to be sold and Turn Wright Machine Works physical location is going to have to relocate. I have been offered a prime location in nearby industrial zone over in South Dennis, 159 Great western Road, that will suit a machine shop, however, the condition of premises needs many costly upgrades to properly support turn Wright Machine Works to the standards that I demand.


My new landlord is stepping up to the plate and refurbishing the shell of the building but of course I will have the financial responsibility for all the add-ons needed to set up and operate Turn Wright Machine Works, like plumb in the proper three phase electric power supply, lighting, Painting, climate control, safety requirements along with adding on insurance ECT. This transformation / move is greatly exceeding my conceivable budget especially since my funds have been depleted in the process of divorce. My heartfelt dreams are to have a successful renovation of the new Turn Wright Machine Works.


 Any helping funds will allow me to set up the new location on my own and continue to operate Turn Wright Machine Works supplying its unique needed services here on Cape Cod and the Islands. Equally important and personally dear to me, keep my YouTube channel “Keith Fenner” where I get to give back by supplying educational YouTube videos and my support for the machining community which I have been part of since March of 2011.


 I live each day, waking up with motivation to help my customers by using my old school talents while helping them out with their unique projects they bring to me. Your funds will help keep my business and my talents alive here on the cape that makes a difference in my customer’s and student’s lives.
