  • Hello from Michigan - love this site

    GM Automotive Manufacturing Engineer for 30 years desigining, purchasing, and installing final assembly lines for the FWD Halfshafts for GM and even Toyota & Chrysler worldwide. Something new every day around the world.
    Had enough and retired 3 years ago when I was constantly asked to support and bail out the incompetence in China and Mexico while giving (helping out our PARTNERS as my boss would say) them all our technology and trade secrets.
    Don't get this wrong as it was a wonderful career with many challenges that I thoroughly enjoyed except for the last 3-4years and would do it all again.

    Ok on to welding - strictly hobby type fixing and fabricating most everything in the small job category for the family and neighbors for the last 30yrs as well.
    It's my creative relaxing time when I'm not somewhere else in the world.

    Hobbies include - RC flying airplanes and helicopters, SCUBA, Exotic foods, Travel, Photography, welding/fabricating. We have been to all 7 continents, the 4 largest water falls, 3 largest rivers, All continential highest peaks including Mt. Everest (Not including K2 in Pakistan)

    Basically we live life with no regrets and thrive on adrenalin.

        My only question is did you vote ?

        Shovelon - To clarify, I have not and will never consider them my friends, only a means to a retirement end.

          My voting record is personal. Now, you mis-spelled my name.

          Do you have a question about WELDING you'd like answered?
