There are even a set of HK Porter cutters on the Moon, brought and left by one of the Apollo missions as a backup system to cut cables before the pod blasted off to reunite with the orbiting capsule. Alan has spent the last 23 years as the owner of Merrimac Tool Inc, which has long standing contracts for precision machining, engineering, and assembly services all over the world, with emphasis on Items used in the Medical Industry, Metrology tools in the Semiconductor industry, Solar Electric generation ,and other highly-engineered products.
