Good for him!! It's too bad that this country has lost most of our skilled craftsmen and the jobs that went with them.

Wow Tom! Good to see you getting this PR. I for many others can confirm this individual is a MASTER craftsman. Others are in his league but they create different end products so we can easily put Tom at the top of the list. What I worry about with Tom? I knew him before he had all the whiskers/beard and some day, when he is examining the hot metal up close, it will go up in flame……….
