A portable milling tool, designed by a 309th Maintenance Wing employee, is helping extend the life and safety of A-10 wings, and at the same time is saving the Air Force thousands of dollars.
Tommy Rollins, a machinist with the 577th Commodities Reclamation Squadron, 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, worked for about three years to perfect what is now called the A-10 Wing Station 110 Milling Tool. He recently brought the third version of the tool to the A-10 Wing Shop, 574th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (Technical Repair) for use at Hill.
