Hello all, new guy here


My name is Rob, I'm a machinist with 20+ years experience. A self taught MIG & TIG welder and a certified stick welder. Been fabricating for about 20+ years as well. No longer machining for a living but still do machine from time to time at work. I build satelites and am a precision space craft technician. I love 4x4 off road building and customizing. Ride dirt bikes with my now 11 yr old son, his mom and I live in sin so no we're not married lol. I prefer it that way.

I've been on disibility for the last 5 months fighting cancer. I go back to work Nov 5th, 6 months to the day I passed out in the shower and almost died from massive brain swelling. Avatar pic is my skull after I had brain surgery. Anyways, I already feel I'm rambling so I'll stop. Looking for some wood tech. I'm sure this is the right place to find it. I'll very much appreciate any and all help I'm given.

When Darwin is tossed out the window, our species will be plagued with people too dumb to live, who aren't allowed to die. http://coloradok5.com/forums/images/smilies/crazy.gif
