Hi all. I'm a retired pipefitter/welder with a life time of metal fabrication in one discipline or another. After an aborted attempt at making a living shooting pool I was forced by economic reasons to enter the workplace as a productive member. Started out pre-heating metal out ahead of a welder in Michigan in February. He made 3 times what I made and the impetus to join him lit a fire under me that eventually took me to welding school, a pipefitter union apprenticeship, and a lifetime of following large construction projects all over the USA and a couple countries. Retired now and building a blacksmith shop to join with my woodshop and my welding shop. Knives will definitely be on the list. I'm a widower, 72, lifetime motorcycle rider, pool hustler when the mood arises, a daytripper, a non-stop builder of whatever strikes my fancy, and a lover of long motorcycle rides. Been to all four corners of then USA on my bike twice.
