Matsuura USA Customer, Mac McGrew owner of Rollag Precision Machine in South Hawley, MN, (Instagram: mmcgrew10l) participated in a fundraiser for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund utilizing his Matsuura MC-510V Vertical Machining Center.
McGrew is younger than the 30-plus year-old Matsuura MC-510V Vertical Machining Center he used to machine the endplates.
“This was a pretty fun project I was able to be a part of to help raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. My Longtime friend and mentor, Chad at Otto’s Welding, had asked if I could help make the endplates for the Top Fuel Blower. These were turned into a lamp for the fundraiser auction, and they did a beautiful job,” McGrew said.
The items were auctioned the items at the NHRA Drag Races at Brainerd International Raceway and raised over $10,000 for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes.
“I had to call in a favor with my friend @nitropolitan (Instagram) for the buff job after machining to really finish the project off, and he delivered as always,” McGrew added.
Matsuura machines are built to hold tolerances and maintain high-precision, even 30 years later. In addition to the Matsuura MC-510V Vertical Machining Center, Rollag Precision Machine also has a decades old Matsuura MC-600VF Vertical Machining Center.
“Our Matsuura machines here at Rollag Precision Machine continue to perform many decades after their construction—it is a true testament to the reliability and endurance in modern industry,” McGrew explained.

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund serves United States military personnel experiencing the Invisible Wounds of War: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). When our Servicemen and women return from the battlefield, we help them fight The War Within, by building “world class”, advanced treatment centers providing the best TBI and PTS care, enabling them to continue to serve on Active Duty and enjoy a productive life.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) builds critically-needed centers for treating United States military personnel suffering the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). These injuries have severely impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of men and women who have served selflessly in defense of our nation. To help address this urgent need, IFHF is building a series of ten specially-designed treatment facilities, called Intrepid Spirit Centers, on military bases across the nation. These centers act as Gymnasiums for The Brain, providing service members with the most advanced care available to address the complex symptoms of TBI and PTS. Seven Intrepid Spirit Centers are open and serving America’s brave men and women in uniform. More than 90% of patients treated in the centers can continue Active Duty. Three additional centers remain to be built.
The Intrepid Spirit Center program is only the latest in the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund’s almost 20-year history of assisting America’s military community. Since 2000, IFHF has provided over $200 million in support for severely wounded military personnel and families of military personnel lost in service to our nation.
“The men and women of Intrepid Fallen Heroes have given so much–it’s an honor to give back,” McGrew explained.
