Rural Canada’s Blind Machinist
A mechanical engineering shop with machines and tools in a large spaceCurtis Heinin grew up in rural Canada without any sight. Naturally good with his hands, he didn’t let his visual impairment stop him from becoming a well respected machinist.


He has made special adaptions, putting Braille labels on boxes that hold different parts and he has memorized where various items are stored, but he does the same work that any machinist in his position would do.


According to his customers, he’s one of the best. And his coworkers say they often forget he can’t see because he’s just that good at what he does.
